New Mexico Hospital Report Cards
In 2009, Albuquerque joined 14 communities nationwide in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s (RWJF) national initiative, Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q), RWJF’s core strategy in its longstanding commitment to improve the quality of health care that Americans receive. The Albuquerque Coalition for Healthcare Quality, a broad-based group of stakeholders comprised of health care providers, health plans, businesses and consumers, was established to carry out the AF4Q program in Albuquerque.
For example, we believe that measuring and reporting on health care, if done right, can:
- help providers improve their own ability to deliver quality care;
- help providers measure and publicly report their performance; and
- help patients and consumers understand their vital role in recognizing and demanding high-quality care, which includes encouraging them to become better partners with their doctors in managing their own health and health care.
With the support of the community, we can help drive lasting change in the quality of health and health care in Albuquerque. For more information about Aligning Forces for Quality, please visit: http://www.rwjf.org/qualityequality/af4q/index.jsp
