The Regional Health Commission manages four planning committees responsible for the design and implementation of the Gateway to Better Health Pilot Program.

  • The Pilot Program Planning Team makes recommendations for the pilot program, ensures the milestones of the demonstration project are fulfilled, and provides operational oversight for the Gateway to Better Health Pilot Program.
  • The Operations Team monitors and recommends necessary adjustments to Gateway operational functions.
  • The Finance Team monitors the financial results of the Pilot Program and recommends adjustments to achieve financials goals.

In addition, a Safety Net Transition Team was formed to develop a final Transition Plan for ensuring access to primary and specialty care services for the low-income population of St. Louis City and County after the conclusion of the Gateway to Better Health Demonstration Project.
