Quality Health Care and You - Diabetes

What is Aligning Forces for Quality?

Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q) initiative - the Foundation's core strategy in its longstanding commitment to improve the quality of health care that Americans receive - brings an unprecedented commitment of resources, expertise and training to turn proven practices into real results on the ground. By teaming up those who get care, give care and pay for care, we can deliver lasting change across entire communities.

The premise of Aligning Forces is that no single person, group or profession can improve health and health care throughout a community without support of others. AF4Q asks these critical stakeholders to work toward common, fundamental objectives that RWJF and others believe will lead to better care. For example, we believe that measuring and reporting on health care, if done right, can:

  1. Help providers improve their own ability to deliver quality care
  2. Help providers measure and publicly report their performance
  3. Help patients and consumers understand their vital role in recognizing and demanding high-quality care
