#ICYMI - Alliance's CEO, Jacob Reider, MD, was a part of a great conversation about interoperability with other industry leaders at FierceHealthIT's virtual series today! #FierceTelehealth

“We talk about the health care domain like it is just medical care – it’s important to remember that medical care, social care, and behavioral care are all of the legs. We can’t forget those other two... and they very much should be a part of this conversation. We run the risk of assuming we can medicalize social and behavioral health and put the same standards on them. I think its important that we think about this more globally than just those of us in the medical space – we really need to be intentional about remembering the rest of the domain,” said Reider.

We are a collaborative, high-performing, regional network of organizations that provide social services (access to food, shelter, transportation, etc.) to the underserved communities spanning Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Fulton, Montgomery, and Saratoga counties. A community convener, Alliance brings together health providers of all kinds – medical, social, and behavioral – to cultivate sustainable, community-wide solutions that better health.

We assist (our community members + partners), we advise (where necessary), we augment (when invited to do so), we assess (to offer feedback about our shared progress), and we take accountability for the health of our community.


The work we do is largely possible thanks to Healthy Together, Alliance’s free referral platform, used to connect thousands of community members in need to our growing network of organizations ready and willing to help. Healthy Together links health providers of all kinds (from regional hospitals to local food pantries and everyone in between), so that basic human needs – not just medical ones – are met timely and with kindness.




At the very foundation of our company is a shared belief that we exist only because we continue to foster real change for our community’s most vulnerable. Our hypothesis, which is part of a growing trend, is that by addressing social needs (access to healthy food, stable housing, job training, etc.) before they evolve into medical problems (routine – costly – trips to the emergency department for warmth during cold, winter months for the homeless population, etc.) will improve the overall health of our communities, while reducing medical costs for all.
