American Hospital Association Writes Letter to President-Elect Trump


The American Hospital Association (AHA) issued a letter to President-elect Donald J. Trump asking him to consider several healthcare policies.

“In today’s transformative and challenging environment, we are proud of the contributions of America’s hospitals and health systems, and are encouraged by the opportunities to lead our health care system into the future,” wrote AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack. “To help advance health in America, we ask that your administration – in collaboration with Congress and the courts, and in partnership with health care providers – help modernize the public policy environment to enhance providers’ ability to improve care and make it more affordable for patients.”

The AHA shared five main priorities with Trump, asking him to:

  1. Reduce regulatory burden
  2. Enhance healthcare affordability and value
  3. Promote quality and patient safety
  4. Ensure access to care and coverage
  5. Advance health system transformation and innovation

“We look forward to working with you and your administration on public policy solutions to achieve our vision of a society of healthy communities where all individuals reach their highest potential for health,” Pollack added
