ACA Implementation and Comprehensive Population Health Systems

ACA Implementation and Comprehensive Population Health Systems

The Affordable Care Act began in 2011 to establish new resources and incentives for hospitals, insurers, public health agencies, and others to contribute to disease prevention and health promotion activities, potentially expanding the implementation of strategies that improve population health. Using data from the longitudinal study of public health systems, the multi-sector contributions to comprehensive public health activities from 1998 to 2014 are examined in this project, including the relationship of comprehensive health system capabilities to community outcomes, including mortality rates, life expectancy and medical care spending, and in high and low income communities.
