Together We Advance Health Care.
AMGA Foundation empowers members to improve health and health care. With our partners and members, we improve health for millions of Americans through our signature programs: the Acclaim Award, Best Practices Learning Collaboratives, and our national campaigns, which include Diabetes: Together 2 Goal®.
Our population health initiatives are unique because we share best practices based on quantitative data generated by our members. We translate what works best in improving health and health care into everyday practice, enabling groups to deliver the best care possible.
For decades, AMGA Foundation has supported and disseminated research on better ways to deliver coordinated, evidence-based, patient-centered healthcare. Our national campaigns build on the successes that emerged from our Best Practices Learning Collaboratives and mobilize AMGA members to improve care and patient outcomes for the most pressing chronic conditions. Our second national campaign, Together 2 Goal®, has already improved care for more than 1 million people living with Type 2 diabetes.
Tackling chronic illness by creating communities of knowledge, our Collaboratives bring together several member groups to develop solutions for managing specific chronic conditions. We create intimate communities of knowledge where participants meet in-person and virtually to share tools and resources to accelerate systematic change and create breakthroughs in patient care.
The Acclaim Award, supported by AMGA Foundation, rewards medical groups and other organized systems of care that are bringing the American healthcare system closer to the ideal delivery model – one that is safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable.
In just five years, our campaigns have improved high blood pressure detection and control for more than 540,000 Americans and Type 2 diabetes care for more than 1 million. We have the reach to impact even more lives, through a network of 440 medical groups who represent more than 175,000 physicians and deliver care to 1 out of every 3 Americans.
Members of the Chronic Care Roundtable are collaborating with AMGA leaders to shape these national campaigns. Comprised of industry representatives from across the healthcare field, the Roundtable provides key resources and vital input to ensure better health and care for Americans.
The Ambassador Workgroup (AWG) is comprised of healthcare leaders from AMGA’s member groups who raise awareness and develop resources to sustain AMGA Foundation’s initiatives to create a healthier America for patients with chronic and preventable conditions.
