Health Equity

We take accountability for the health of our community.

Collaborate to Innovate!

As part of the evolution towards a value-based payment environment, we launched a $4.6 million Innovation Award program on May 1, 2018. This program supports Alliance partners in designing and implementing innovative programs to improve the health of the patients and clients we serve and reduce avoidable use of the health care system.

Who We Are

We are a collaborative network made up of primary and acute care, behavioral health, Community-Based Organizations, and local and state government. We serve the Medicaid members and uninsured community members spanning Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Fulton, Montgomery, and Saratoga counties.

What We Do

Our job is to break down silos and barriers; building a bridge between community partners to ultimately create a healthier community. We assist (you and your teams), we advise (where necessary), we augment (when invited to do so), we assess (to offer feedback about our shared progress), and we take accountability for the success of the community.

Why It Matters

We created Alliance for Better Health in response to the State’s call to redesign the way we address intractable health issues and related costs. Our vision is health equity. We are driving toward a united and collaborative care delivery community, transforming care to improve the health of the most underserved.
