Policy Analysis & Development

As a catalyst to improve health, we harness data and research to help identify, develop, and support policies that improve the health of Arkansans. Our team works closely with partners and stakeholders, often serving as a convener to support a broad array of policy initiatives that seek to improve population health, coverage and access to care, healthcare quality and payment improvement, and other emerging issues.
