Whether it's strong, effective advocacy or high quality, cost effective member services, CHA's work on behalf of its hospitals focuses on three strategic pillars: leadership in quality and patient safety, improving community health, and shaping financing and delivery system changes.
Advocacy during the 2013 Legislative Session focused on implementing solutions that would have avoided damaging cuts to hospitals. Unfortunately, the final budget retained the cuts. Hospitals will persevere as they remain committed to providing excellent, high quality care to everyone who walks through their doors, and will continue to work with the state on meaningful reform that will help patients across Connecticut.
In addition to engaging with legislators on issues of importance to hospitals and the healthcare community, the Connecticut Hospital Association provides a forum to discuss Connecticut hospitals' ambitious patient safety, diversity, and quality initiatives as well as the continuing reimbursement issues facing hospitals statewide.
