Medical Director Advisory Council

National Medical Director Advisory Council

Optimizing workforce health, productivity and performance

The National Alliance Medical Director Advisory Council supports the efforts of coalitions and other key stakeholders to optimize workforce health, productivity and performance. Comprised of clinicians who are medical directors of National Alliance member coalitions, this council addresses the latest science and employer health benefit strategies to help employers improve health and healthcare value.

The Council provides a forum for monthly discussion of clinically related and timely topics relevant to employer benefits and creates a channel for information dissemination to coalitions. Members also engage in collaborative research to enhance the value employers can derive from their investments in workforce health and wellbeing.

Focus areas of the Medical Director Advisory Council are self-guided; the group selects topics for collective investigation and external funding support, as needed. Members also organize, lead and participate in monthly Medical Director on Demand discussion forums.
