Alabama Employers Take Active Hand in Healthcare Quality
On March 6, Alabama employers gathered to kick off the Alabama Employer Health Consortium (AEHC). Regions
Financial, McWane Inc., and Austal USA are the founding members of this new statewide non-profit dedicated
to improving Alabama healthcare from an employer’s perspective. Learn more...
AEHC has become the Leapfrog Group Regional Leader for the State of Alabama. AEHC’s third pillar
focuses on initiatives to improve the provision of healthcare. Our members will encourage hospitals
within the state to participate in the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. It is the “gold standard” in evaluating
hospital quality and safety. It is a voluntary survey and currently less than 20% of Alabama hospitals
participate. We are excited to encourage greater participation in the survey for Alabama hospitals!
