    2020 AAHC President's Council on Health Plans and Population Health


    Formed in early 2020, the AAHC President’s Council* on Health Plans and Population Health focused 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. 
    • Produce other materials as deemed important by the council.

    *Prior to the Association of Academic Health Centers (AAHC)--AAMC merger in 2022, the councils were known as the AAHC President’s Councils.
