  • 21st Century Cures Act Fact Sheet The 21st Century Cures Act is considered the most comprehensive piece of federal healthcare legislation since the passage of the Affordable Care Act.

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.

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 system transformation—with supporting infrastructure of health data and research.

Through development of policy positions and statements, the ACHI Health Policy Board helps establish strategic priorities that provide guidance for our work. More information on the Health Policy Board and their policy positions and statements is available here.
