Program Officer

Jim Lloyd, JD, MPP, is a program officer at the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS). He supports CHCS’ initiatives to improve care for populations with complex medical and social needs, including the Complex Care Innovation Lab, Helping States Support Families Caring for an Aging America, and the Transforming Complex Care initiative. In particular, he works with payers, providers, and state officials to develop delivery system reforms that support the non-traditional health care workforce, such as community health workers and promotores, and integrate them into innovative models of care. He has also provided technical assistance to advance payment and delivery system reforms, including the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation’s State Innovation Model and Innovation Accelerator Programs as well as work to support the development of state-based Medicaid accountable care organizations.

Prior to joining CHCS, Mr. Lloyd was a research associate at Rutgers University’s Education and Employment Research Center, where he contributed to program evaluations of workforce training initiatives, including a program to provide hybrid and online training to health care workers in rural mountainous areas of the country, and one designed to train community health workers in New Jersey. Mr. Lloyd also worked with the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers to help develop plans for the Integrated Population Health Data system for the state of New Jersey. Mr. Lloyd received his JD from Fordham University School of Law and a master’s degree in public policy with a concentration on health care policy from the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University.
