Arkansas's innovative initiative to improve health system quality and control rising costs is documented in this video. Featured are overviews of each initiative component, including patient-centered medical homes, health homes and episodes of care, along with commentary from key stakeholders and project leaders.
As the U.S. health care system undergoes dramatic changes, ACHI developed a patient-centered vision for rebuilding our health system to better meet the needs of Arkansans. Today Arkansans across the state, from both the public and private sectors, are working together to proactively shape the future of our health system.
As the state embarks upon health care system transformation, workforce development is a crucial component of a viable, efficient system. ACHI has undertaken key projects to guide and inform policy development with a goal of ensuring that an adequate health care workforce is available to all Arkansans.

ACHI was envisioned as an organization dedicated to change—change that leads to improved health for all Arkansans. While we have made positive strides in changing
Arkansas’s health environment, our work is far from finished. Ongoing activities as well as historical successes are described in Our Work.
As our nation and state undergo dramatic and rapid shifts, ACHI is committed to adapting to these changing opportunities and challenges
and works to keep you up to date on the latest news and events that impact the health of Arkansans. Please visit our News & Events page
for the most recent information that affects our policy work.
ACHI’s activities are centered in three Areas of Focus that influence the health of Arkansans— population health policy, access to
quality care, and health care financing —with supporting infrastructure of health data and research.
