HASD&IC’s 2017 Regional Policy Priorities are driven by a shared vision with CHA and the Regional Associations of an optimally healthy society and goal that all Californians have equitable, safe, high quality, medically necessary, patient-centered health care.
The primary focus of the Hospital Association of San Diego & Imperial Counties (HASD&IC) is to provide advocacy on behalf of our members at city, county, and regional level, and support CHA at the state and federal level. In partnership with CHA, HASD&IC works with state and federal elected officials in their districts. HASD&IC serves as a unified voice to represent and promote the value of community hospitals to elected officials, health care stakeholders, and to the communities they serve through effective advocacy, cross-sector convening, and education.
Of the six top public policy priorities identified this year, Behavioral Health, Emergency Services, Medi-Cal, and Workforce are at the core of our focus for 2017.
Addressing these policy priorities will alleviate the financial pressures faced by members, increase access to care, remove barriers to effective population health management, and lead us closer to the Association’s vision of an optimally healthy society.
