PHC4 30th Anniversary

PHC4 Marks Thirty Years of Firsts and Looks to Future

On Nov. 21, 2016 nearly 80 people assembled to attend a meeting marking the 30th anniversary of the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council (PHC4), an independent state agency charged with collecting, analyzing, and reporting information that can be used to improve the quality and restrain the cost of health care in the state.

Since its inception in 1986, PHC4’s work has been marked by a series of “firsts” and led to their reputation as a trusted health care data aggregator and reporter. The meeting, which was held in the auditorium of the Rachel Carson State Office Building, recognized the critical work of PHC4 and included guest speaker Dr. David Nash of Jefferson College of Population Health. Dr. Nash is internationally recognized for his work in public accountability for outcomes, physician leadership development and quality-of-care improvement.

At the meeting Dr. Nash was presented with 2016 PHC4 Health Care Leadership Award for his vision, dedication and commitment to the council.

After the morning presentation, an executive session of the council was held.
