The AHA has joined Aligning for Health, a coalition advocating for federal and state solutions to address the social determinants of health. “Social factors greatly influence patients’ total health and wellbeing, encouraging hospitals and health systems to care for patients outside their four walls,” said Ashley Thompson, AHA senior vice president for public policy. “We are pleased to be supporting this work by joining other Aligning for Health partners in the effort to break down government silos so that federal funds can be used in innovative ways to provide comprehensive care to patients in our communities.”
