The National Alliance is a national, non-profit, membership organization of purchaser-led health care coalitions – a “coalition of coalitions.” The National Alliance and its members are dedicated to value-based purchasing of health care services through the collective action of public and private purchasers. The National Alliance seeks to accelerate the nation’s progress towards safe, efficient, high-quality health care, and the improved health status of the American population.
The National 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, the National Alliance’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.
