How is the One Utah Health Collaborative announced in 2021 working to improve health care?|

SALT LAKE CITY — When Utah Gov. Spencer Cox announced a statewide initiative to reduce health care costs in late 2021, he called it "one of the most transformative and visionary health care efforts" in the country.

Eighteen months later, Cox is calling the One Utah Health Collaborative a "heavy, heavy lift," but says he is feeling good about the direction in which the process is headed.

"It is big, and it is bold, and it will take all of us working together to accomplish," the governor said during his monthly news conference on Thursday.

The One Utah Health Collaborative takes a unique approach to address problems "through collaboration and innovation rather than regulation," according to a written progress update provided to by Elise Saarela, the collaborative's program director. It also has three roles: Commit to action, align the community and accelerate innovation.
