About Us

Commonwealth Medicine partners with purposeful organizations, including state Medicaid agencies and other health and human service organizations, to improve the health care experience, making it more equitable, effective, and accessible. As part of UMass Chan Medical School, we leverage our world-class expertise and our decades of experience to develop innovative, actionable solutions that transform every aspect of the health and human service system – from payment and financing to clinical practice and information management. Most of all, we believe in the power of a shared purpose; together, we can make healthcare better.

Collaboration is a cornerstone of our practice; we delve deep to understand what is important to our clients and how we can support them in reaching their goals. Working together, we create and implement forward-looking ideas and programs to address the system itself and how we pay for health care, manage information, and deliver quality care to everyone. We aim to transform the health care experience to one that addresses the needs and concerns of the individual and is inclusive of all. 

Our values and core principles below underscore our philosophy on how we support our clients and the people they serve.

Our Foundational Values:
Collaboration, Respect, Integrity, Excellence
