About the Cambia Grove        

Why did you create the Cambia Grove?

Cambia Grove was launched in 2015 by Cambia Health Solutions to connect a community of health care changemakers. We have grown and evolved since then to target systemwide opportunities to drive large-scale health care transformation. We leverage our success as a connector to build partnerships to create, pilot or scale solutions that enable health care transformation.

How would Cambia define health care transformation? What’s really going to move the needle?

Health care transformation realigns health care to center on the needs of consumers, not the needs of institutions (providers, insurance plans, employers), using the levers of reimbursement, transparency and ease of use.

How will you navigate working with direct competitors — what does that look like?

The Cambia Grove is a neutral space. We welcome everyone from across the health care sector—patients, providers, policy makers, purchasers and payers –to join us in conversation, working together to pursue a more economically sustainable health care system, focused on people.

It all starts with relationships — and trust — which is cultivated in communities over time.
