The 2015 AHA Environmental Scan provides insight and information about market forces that have a high probability of affecting the health care field. It is designed to help hospital and health system leaders better understand the health care landscape and the critical issues and emerging trends their organizations likely will face in the foreseeable future.

The 2015 Environmental Scan is the foundation of the AHA’s three-year strategic plan. It serves the association by validating its strategic framework: the AHA’s vision, mission, values and goals. The 2015 Environmental Scan is compiled from nationally recognized sources with recommendations from AHA governance committees. The scan is produced by Gene O’Dell, the AHA’s vice president for strategic planning and performance excellence, with assistance from Donna Aspy, planning and operations manager, leadership and business development.
