About NASHP

The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) is an independent academy of state health policymakers. We are dedicated to helping states achieve excellence in health policy and practice. A non-profit and non-partisan organization, NASHP provides a forum for constructive work across branches and agencies of state government on critical health issues. Click here to learn more about NASHP's history. 

 

To accomplish our mission we:

  • Convene state leaders to solve problems and share solutions
  • Conduct policy analyses and research
  • Disseminate information on state policies and programs
  • Provide technical assistance to states

The responsibility for health care and health care policy does not reside in a single state agency or department. At NASHP, we provide a unique forum for productive interchange across all lines of authority, including executive offices and the legislative branch.

We work across a broad range of health policy topics including:

  • Affordable Care Act and State Health Care Reform
  • Coverage and Access
  • Medicaid and CHIP
  • Quality, Cost, and Health System Performance
  • Long Term and Chronic Care
  • Quality and Patient Safety
  • Population and Public Health
  • Insurance Coverage and Cost Containment

Our strengths and capabilities include:

  • Active participation by a large number of volunteer state officials
  • Developing consensus reports through active involvement in discussions among people with disparate political views
  • Planning and executing large and small conferences and meetings with substantial user input in defining the agenda
  • Distilling the literature in language useable and useful for practitioners
  • Identifying and describing emerging and promising practices
  • Developing leadership capacity within states by enabling communication within and across states
