About the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care

Americans are leading healthier and longer lives that ever before, yet the vast majority will face advanced illness, a situation where one or more conditions progress to the point that health and functioning decline, and care becomes increasingly focused on quality of life.

The Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC) is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit alliance of over 140 national healthcare stakeholders. We are dedicated to the goal that all Americans with advanced illness receive comprehensive, high-quality, person-centered care that is consistent with their goals and values, and honors their dignity.

From the 2017 National Summit

“Over the years C-TAC has built an absolute bulldozer of support behind it and I think its maybe time to put that bulldozer into forward gear and start looking to drive some legislation through Washington.”

Sheldon Whitehouse

United States Senator

“Start with ‘what does the patient desire and long for in this?’ If we started there, we'd measure very different things.”
