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 einlowhood@wahealthalliance.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.

About Washington Health Alliance

The Washington Health Alliance is a place where stakeholders work collaboratively to transform Washington state’s health care system for the better. The Alliance brings together organizations that share a commitment to drive change in our health care system by offering a forum for critical conversation and aligned efforts by stakeholders: purchasers, providers, health plans, consumers and other health care partners. The Alliance believes strongly in transparency and offers trusted and credible reporting of progress on measures of health care quality and value. The Alliance is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit with more than 185 member organizations. A cornerstone of the Alliance's work is the Community Checkup, a report to the public comparing the performance of medical groups, hospitals and health plans and offering a community-level view on important measures of health care quality (www.wacommunitycheckup.org).
