What is an affiliated community?

We have established affiliated communities for each of our work groups such as the population-based payment work group or the clinical episodes payment work groups. The work groups will be releasing early drafts and requesting input from the affiliated communities as they draft work products and white papers.

What is an affinity group?

Affinity groups are collaborative groups of stakeholder groups such as providers, payers and consumers & patients. These stakeholder groups are engaged to provide specific input to the activities and products of the LAN.
