In anticipation of early action on health system reform, ANA initiated its first official outreach to the incoming Administration. The letter outlines, to President-elect Trump’s transition team, ANA’s principals for any undertaking that would seek to transform our current health system
Highlights from the Letter:
For decades, the American Nurses Association (ANA) has advocated for health care system reforms that would guarantee access to high-quality, affordable health care for all. ANA is calling on you and your administration to prioritize the health of the nation, which is foundational to progress and economic growth. We are pleased to share our principles for health system transformation.
ANA’s Principles for Health System Transformation
- Ensure universal access to a standard package of essential health care services for all citizens and residents.
- Optimize primary, community-based and preventive services while supporting the cost-effective use of innovative, technology-driven, acute, hospital-based services.
- Encourage mechanisms to stimulate economical use of health care services while supporting those who do not have the means to share in costs.
- Ensure a sufficient supply of a skilled workforce dedicated to providing high quality health care services.
