AAHC President’s Councils aim to advance thought leadership, foster sharing of best practices, and catalyze the diffusion of innovation.

Formed in early 2020, the AAHC President’s Council on Health Plans and Population Health focuses on key issues related to health plans, such as the benefits and risks associated with health plan models offered at academic health centers, innovative population health approaches that aim to reduce costs and improve health, and other issues as identified by Council members.

The members of the Council met via various forums throughout the year to examine health insurance plans at academic health centers along with innovative practices in population health, in order to:

  • Create an inventory of health plan models at AAHC member academic health centers;
  • Curate a set of descriptions of innovative practices in population health;
  • Identify and annotate a collection of relevant key readings; and
  • Produce other materials as deemed important by the Council.

AAHC 2020 Annual Meeting

Current Practices in Population Health at the Academic Health Center

Academic health center leaders were invited to take part in a session led by the AAHC President’s Council on Health Plans and Population Health that included both a sharing of best practices from members and an interactive component. Participants were invited to present either a 5-minute “ignite-style” presentation or a poster on population health initiatives at academic health centers. For complete details of the session, please read "Population Health at the Academic Health Center: An Interactive, Multipart, Care-Based Session for Executives, Faculty and Administrators," published in MedEdPORTAL. The abstracts are below.
