AMA and Healthcare Organizations Form Common Health Coalition

The coalition aims to take the lessons they learned from COVID-19 and put them into actionable strategies.

By HFT Staff

The American Medical Association (AMA) and four other leading healthcare organizations announced the Common Health Coalition: Together for Public Health. The Common Health Coalition is focused on translating the hard-won lessons and successes of the COVID-19 pandemic response into actionable strategies that will strengthen the partnership between our healthcare and public health systems. The Coalition is the product of a joint commitment to public health made in March 2023 by founding members AHIP, the Alliance of Community Health Plans, the American Hospital Association, the American Medical Association, and Kaiser Permanente.  

In early 2024, the Coalition will publish recommendations informed by technical advisory groups of subject matter experts and an advisory council of public health leaders. The recommendations will focus on four initial priority areas: spearheading greater coordination between the public health and healthcare systems; building shared, well-maintained emergency preparedness plans; establishing national standards for healthcare data that help identify health disparities; and modernizing infectious disease detection. The development of these recommendations is being facilitated by ChangeLab Solutions, a national nonprofit that uses the tools of law and policy to advance health equity. 

The Coalition’s work is informed by an advisory council of public health leaders chaired by Georges C. Benjamin, MD, executive director of the American Public Health Association, and J. Nadine Gracia, MD, MSCE, president and CEO of Trust for America’s Health.
