Three leading public health organizations have announced plans to partner in a project aimed at helping the nation’s healthcare providers prepare for the 2014 expansion of Medicaid coverage under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

America’s Essential Hospitals, the National Association of Community Health Centers and The George Washington University School of Public Health Services have joined in a three-year, $1.8 million collaboration funded by Kaiser Permanente to assess areas where hospitals, clinics and other health providers can partner to meet the challenges expected to arise as a result of millions of Americans becoming newly eligible for Medicaid.
