Physician Leadership Forum

The American Hospital Association's Physician Leadership Forum (PLF) is a new way for physicians and hospitals to advance excellence in patient care. Through the Forum, the AHA will work more closely with the medical community to identify best practices and deliver value-based care. Participating physicians and hospitals will commit to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of care delivery. The American Hospital Association's Physician Leadership Forum also offers physicians a unique opportunity to participate in AHA policy and advocacy development process while preparing to collaboratively lead the hospitals of the future.
