"The Alliance helps our organization to understand the impact of changes in governmental payment and coverage policies. Over the years, the Alliance has advocated for clinicians and manufacturers, bringing a respected and credible voice to regulators and policy makers. The Alliance somehow always seems to be the first to know and never hesitates to provide a heads up on what this may mean to our organization. They make our jobs much more tenable, helping us break down complex regulatory language so that we can make informed decisions about our products."

"The Alliance is a powerful voice with government and with private payers. They thoroughly evaluate proposed medical policies, they get back with sound evidence-based responses and recommendations. They're far more effective than any of us could be on our own in the wound care space."
--Dr. Stephen Daugherty, American Vein & Lymphatic Society

“The opportunity to serve the Alliance has been crucial to my professional and personal development. Through my involvement in the Alliance, I learned about interacting with Medicare, how to read and interpret healthcare policies, how to identify the specific individuals at CMS who need to be involved in “fixing” problematic language, preparing and implementing successful meetings with regulatory bodies, the importance of documenting activities and messaging, the right way to create written comments, how to interact with the FDA strategically- I can keep going. I can’t imagine where I’d be if it hadn’t been for this experience. It’s helped every part of my career in ways I could not have imagined.”
--Dr. Caroline Fife, Chief Medical Officer, Intellicure, LLC, Former Alliance Co-Chair

"The ultimate goal of the Alliance is patient access to quality care and therapies. Having a third part to pull us all (clinician and industry) together has been very beneficial.... they don't take no for an answer, they will continue to push for change."
--Yesenia Banks, Senior Manager US Reimbursement and Healthcare Policy, 3M 
"The Alliance is an amazing group to marry industries and societies. It represents so many important topics. There is really no other body that assembles that type of talent and ability in such a proactive way."
--John Steinberg, DPM, Georgetown University School of Medicine
