The HTCI was created to be large enough to include a broad-based group of stakeholders from around the state but small enough to be an effective working body. The executive team chose a 25-member group to contribute their broad and varied expertise in health and healthcare delivery. Members include:
- Payers – including representatives of three of Idaho’s private payers, a self-funded plan, and Medicaid.
- Clinicians – including representatives from primary care, behavioral health, and medical/surgical sub-specialties.
- Hospital representatives – from a health system, a community hospital, and a critical access hospital.
- Association representatives – from Idaho’s medical association, hospital association, nursing association, primary care association (which represents community and rural health centers), and family physicians.
- A public health district representative.
- A consumer member.
- A representative from Idaho’s Department of Health and Welfare (DHW).
