Community Coalitions

GHA partners with Alliant Health Solutions to provide assistance to members’ communities for the purpose of improving local health care and collaboration. The partnership aims to support local community efforts to improve a local and mutually agreed upon goal such as chronic disease management, care transitions, patient safety, or behavioral health.

Participating hospitals and their community partners, collectively referred to as Community Coalitions, will benefit from the exchange of best practices shared by dozens of communities including those in six other states, data that is regionalized for the coalition,  combined educational resources of both Alliant and GHA, as well as third party facilitation wherever appropriate.

The partnership is a part CMS’s Quality Innovation Network, 12th Scope of Work Task Order 1. There are a limited number of positions for existing and potential coalitions.  Interested GHA members should contact Becca Hallum

Diabetes Prevention and Education

GHA's community health team collaborates with the Georgia Department of Public Health on the State Health Improvement Plan and the Diabetes Collaborative. This program is reffered to as CATAPULT. Funding is available to assist members in their efforts to become certified to offer and bill for the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program.
