Alliance for Better Health engages Amendola communications for marketing services

PR and marketing firm to help the organization communicate its goal of transforming the care delivery system

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., January 29, 2019 – Amendola, a nationally recognized, award-winning health care and technology public relations and marketing agency, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Alliance for Better Health to provide PR and marketing services to the organization.

Amendola will help Alliance for Better Health develop its PR strategy and collaborate with the organization to develop an integrated, coordinated marketing plan.

“Alliance for Better Health’s mission, its innovative approach to building health equity, and its focus on addressing social determinants of health is admirable and inspirational. We expect to see great things from this organization in the coming years and we’re excited to help them get the word out about the amazing work they’re doing,” said CEO Jodi Amendola.

The New York-based Alliance for Better Health’s innovation program is providing more than $5 million to dozens of organizations in the Capital Region to demonstrate new concepts that are proactive in maximizing the health of individuals and, as a result, reducing the need for medical care and the financial burden of that care on individuals, business and taxpayers.

Alliance for Better Health CEO Jacob Reider, M.D., is passionate about addressing social determinants of health, but recognizes there’s still a lot of work to do to raise awareness of its benefits. “It’s so important, but many managed care organizations, community-based organizations and independent physicians struggle to effectively adopt best practices and coordinate services,” Reider said. “Engaging Amendola is just part of our commitment to helping organizations promote the health of people and communities.”

Amendola will be responsible for creating a comprehensive media relations plan that will include securing trade, national and local media placements to showcase the results CMOs, CBOs and IPAs have had when working with Alliance for Better Health. Press releases and contributed content will position the team as content experts and thought leaders and secure speaking opportunities and awards.
