Massachusetts Health Policy Commission

The HPC seeks to promote advance care planning across the Commonwealth through policy work, investment, and research.

• Through its Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Certification program, the HPC sets care delivery standards, and collects information from HPC-certified ACOs about how they are identifying, counseling, and helping patients to plan for advanced illness care.

• Through its investment programs, the HPC partners with providers and community organizations to support promising innovations that address the Commonwealth’s most complex health care cost challenges, including improving access to high-quality care for patients with serious illnesses.

• The HPC has presented data on serious illness care trends in the Commonwealth, and has invested in obtaining data to continue research in this area.
