Why the Alliance?

The Washington Health Alliance is a place where you can work jointly to transform the health care system for the better. We bring together organizations that share our commitment to drive change in our health care system. Working together, we can create the system change we would never be able to achieve individually. Our reports offer unbiased information and important insights that shape the way care is delivered, used and paid for in our state.

We are here to build a strong alliance among health care purchasers, health plans and health care providers to promote health and improve quality and affordability by reducing overuse, underuse and misuse of health care services.
