Common Sense for a Common Good: The 21st Century Mother of Invention

If “necessity is the mother of invention”, then AHECs and their safety net partners have long practiced parsimonious innovation – working wonders with limited budgets to develop novel approaches to health and wellness services for entire communities. The Affordable Care Act provides the perfect platform for AHECs and their partners to collaborate and integrate their efforts for greater impact and to tell their story to a national audience looking for better ways to improve our nation’s health. But there are risks involved: as these cost-effective models of service become part of the mainstream they could become victims of their own success, with payers ratcheting down on their support, followed by reductions in indigent care funding, or losing valuable human resource to other organizations. This presentation will discuss how these assets can be organized to develop a sustainable and uniquely American model of care.
