Hilltop Publishes New Issue Brief on Hospital Community Benefit Policy

The Hilltop Institute’s Hospital Community Benefit Program has just released the eleventh issue brief in its series, Hospital Community Benefits after the ACA. The brief discusses the fact that payment reform focusing on value and quality is driving change that is redefining the hospital’s role in the continuum of care and the health of the broader population.

This brief also identifies opportunities for state policymakers to encourage the evolution of hospital community benefit policy in ways that complement and support the realignment of the hospital business model, proactively address the social determinants of health, and ultimately improve the health of the entire community.
