The Georgia Health Policy Center (GHPC) helps shape how communities in Georgia and around the nation address the costs — both monetary and societal — of fostering health and health care financing. By employing a broad perspective of health that encompasses socioeconomic determinants of well-being, GHPC considers the costs of financing insurance, delivery of care, as well as upstream factors that impact community health.
GHPC brings a systems-wide perspective and a belief in the value of collaboration and collective impact to inform our thought leadership in innovations in health care financing.
Since its inception GHPC has been working with public and private payers, private foundations, the business community, public health agencies, health care delivery systems, and state and federal agencies to provide policy and economic analyses that impacts health care financing. GHPC is active in:
