The Minnesota Health Action Group has been an active member of The National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions (formerly the National Business Coalition on Health) since its inception, and is currently a representative on the Board of Governors.
The National Alliance (or NAHPC) is a national, non-profit, membership organization of purchaser-led health care coalitions – a “coalition of coalitions.” NAHPC and its members are dedicated to value-based purchasing of health care services through the collective action of public and private purchasers. The group seeks to accelerate the nation’s progress towards safe, efficient, high-quality health care, and the improved health status of the American population.
The Action Group is a long-standing member of NAHPC and has served in a leadership capacity for many years. We are committed to the National Alliance, understanding that, while health care is local, many employers’ health and benefits needs are national. NAHPC knits together regional coalitions nationwide, so purchaser members of these coalitions have access to a deep understanding of and relationships within local markets everywhere. In addition, members benefit from the sharing of best practices and free admission to national events.
The Alliance offers a series of Action Briefs to support the critical role purchasers and purchaser-led coalitions play as change agents in improving health and health care in employee populations and the community at large. Each Action Brief focuses on a specific topic of interest. They use data from eValue8, NAHPC’s health plan request for information survey, to better explain the role of health plans around the issue. The Action Briefs provide steps and strategies employers can take to improve health and health care delivery.
