Dear Recipient, 

Happy Holidays from CPR

Happy Holidays from all of us at Catalyst for Payment Reform to all of you who are working to bring better quality and greater value to our health care system. So many people have worked hard this year on that goal, but there is much more to do. We look forward to continuing our work and expanding our partnerships in 2017.
