The ASH Practice Partnership
The ASH Practice Partnership (APP) was developed to amplify
the voices of practitioners both within and outside of ASH. The APP is
comprised of practicing hematologists across the U.S. with interests in
hematology care issues, quality of care, new health care delivery systems, and
practice management issues. Members include representatives from various
practice settings, such as community-based private practices, practices owned
by large, non-hospital entities, hospital-based practices at non-academic
medical centers, and practices owned by academic medical centers.
Members assist ASH by serving in a readily
available, geographically diverse panel that provides feedback to ASH
committees or staff about issues affecting the practice of hematology. The
group also advises ASH about the Society’s practice-related policies, resources,
and programs. Examples of past issues the APP has assisted with include oral parity,
drug shortages, and submitting comments on multiple proposed rules.
