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 will meet 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.
