ACHI Features

  • Walking’s Impact on Health Like Nancy Sinatra’s boots, our latest fact sheet is made for walking. It looks at the impact of walking on health, Arkansas’s past low ratings for walkability, and efforts to make the state more walkable.
  • Arkansas Works Updates Our new fact sheet provides an overview of the recently approved work requirement for enrollees in the Arkansas Works program.
  • Alternative Payment Models: Episodes of Care and Bundled Payments Arkansas is a trailblazer in episode-based payment models designed to improve patient outcomes for things like total joint replacements. Our new case study details how CHI St. Vincent’s success in Arkansas’s model helped them prepare for similar national programs.
  • 3rd Annual Statewide Tracking Report Infographic Arkansas is recognized as a leader in value-based alternative payment models that reward quality outcomes over volume of services. Our new infographic highlights progress of the Arkansas Health Care Payment Improvement Initiative as detailed in our third annual Statewide Tracking Report.
  • Health Care Sharing Ministries Our new fact sheet looks at health care sharing ministries (HCSMs), faith-based organizations that offer an alternative to health insurance.

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.
