2018 Advocacy Agenda

America’s hospitals and health systems are shaping our future to fulfill our vision of a society of healthy communities where all individuals reach their highest potential for health.

To reach that vision, the AHA and our members are committed to:

  • Coverage and access for all;
  • High-value care;
  • Patients, families and other stakeholders being involved as partners;
  • Well-being and prevention; and
  • Providing services in a coordinated, seamless manner.

For 2018, we have developed a forward-thinking advocacy agenda to positively influence the environment for patients, communities and the health care field. We will work hand in hand with our members; the state, regional and metropolitan hospital associations; national health care organizations; and other stakeholders to develop and implement an advocacy strategy to fulfill our vision.
