About this event

The Affordable Care Act began in 2011 to establish new resources and incentives for hospitals, insurers, public health agencies, and others to contribute to disease prevention and health promotion activities, potentially expanding the implementation of strategies that improve population health. Using data from the longitudinal study of public health systems, the multi-sector contributions to comprehensive public health activities from 1998 to 2014 will be presented. The relationship of comprehensive health system capabilities to community outcomes, including mortality rates, life expectancy and medical care spending, in high and low income communities will also be presented.
