Welcome to the Alliance Blog!
The Washington Health Alliance has cultivated a reputation for its nonpartisan reporting on health care quality and cost in Washington state. For the last decade, our reports have been used by health care purchasers, such as King County government, to save millions of dollars on health care spending. Providers have used our data to see areas where they could improve the quality of care they deliver and health plans have used our data to design even more innovative and useful products for their members.
Our hope is that our blog will help our community understand the issues our health care system faces, and what individuals and organizations can do to be part of the solution. We will dive deeper into the issues, and share our insights into how we can work together to improve the system. We will share resources and case studies, short takes on the news of the day and of course continue to share our own research.
We also want to hear from you. If you would like to submit an idea for a guest blog post, please contact Emily Inlow-Hood at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also want to hear from you in our comments section. Our hope is that this blog will contribute to the public conversation about health care value in our state.
