America is at a health care crossroads. Biomedical advances, technological innovations and value-based reimbursement models are transforming how care is delivered and financed. Yet even with these advances, the nation faces an increased burden of chronic diseases, an aging population and persistent health disparities.
We know health care needs to evolve, but there has been little agreement on how to move forward. Uniquely positioned at the crux of clinical practice and public health, ACPM is poised to advance this debate around a single premise: transforming our healthcare system through prevention.
Why Preventive Medicine Matters
ACPM’s Power of Prevention campaign is a multi-year initiative to advance awareness of the critical role prevention plays in ‘curing’ our healthcare system. By working collaboratively with partners and stakeholders, ACPM will harness the power of prevention to save lives, create healthier communities and transform our healthcare system.
