A National Workgroup on Integrating a Safety Net into Health Reform Implementation


Facing uncertainty over funding and their patients' future insurance status, safety-net health care providers will need to integrate their operations and form new relationships with external providers and health care systems. The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) proposes to convene state and federal officials and safety-net leaders to discuss the major issues facing these providers and produce policy guidance for integrating them into health reform implementation. Some of the topics to be explored by the national workgroup include: the organizational barriers to provider integration, the need for compatible health information technology, and the roles that safety-net providers can play in the forthcoming Medicaid expansion.
