In addition to our work in policy and market intelligence, collaborative problem-solving, and strategic planning, Third Horizon Strategies includes the Health Care Council of Chicago (HC3) and The Alliance for Addiction Payment Reform. Learn more about these initiatives below.

Health Care Council of Chicago

The Health Care Council of Chicago (HC3) is an action-oriented collaborative that brings leaders from across the health care ecosystem together to solve our city’s most important health-related issues. Originally founded by Leavitt Partners and MATTER in 2016, HC3 is becoming an independent, dynamic and member-led organization, building and creating actionable solutions. The goal of HC3 is to provide a vehicle for the city’s boldest health care thinkers and stakeholders to develop and advance uncommon solutions to the seemingly intractable health problems facing our communities.

The Alliance for Addiction Payment Reform

The Alliance for Addiction Payment Reform (Alliance) is comprised of national commercial insurance plans, health care associations, health systems, and stakeholder groups organized to transform payment and delivery of addiction health services through the integration of treatment and recovery resources, as well as key operational standards, measures, payment methodologies, tools, and practice guidelines. The Alliance is managed by Third Horizon Strategies and led by David Smith and Greg Williams, both of whom were original editors of the widely-heralded Addiction Recovery Medical Home Alternative Payment Model.
