Advocacy

Policymakers know the Population Health Alliance as the voice of wellness, prevention and population health management and care and turn to Population Health Alliance member leaders and staff for the information and resources they need to guide the decision-making process. Through its Government Affairs Committee, the Population Health Alliance answers that call with expertise that contributes to the process, while always protecting the interests of its members.

The Committee, open to all association members, works to support state and federal legislative initiatives that promote evidence-based population health improvement.

At the federal level, the Population Health Alliance responds to emerging legislative proposals and regulatory policies of potential consequence to its members and other stakeholders. The Population Health Alliance also works with state lawmakers and regulatory officials, educating them on the effectiveness of population health improvement and its benefits to Medicaid and other populations.

The goal of the Population Health Alliance Government Affairs Committee is to ensure evidence-based advocacy on Total Population Management issues by either leading efforts or partnering with strategic industry leaders.

The focus includes collaboration with other Population Health Alliance Committees, including Research and Quality and the HIT Innovation Committee.
