National Partnership for Women & Families

Consumer-Purchaser Alliance

More than 100,000 Americans die in hospitals each year as a result of preventable medical errors.

As the health decision makers for their families, women need to know about the quality of hospitals, physicians and treatments they choose.

In 2002, a group of leading employer, consumer and labor organizations united to initiate actions to ensure that all Americans have access to publicly reported health care performance information. The result was the Consumer-Purchaser Alliance, formerly known as the Consumer-Purchaser Disclosure Project.

The organizations involved in the Consumer-Purchaser Alliance are committed to promoting the use of performance measurement in health care to inform consumer choice, value-based purchasing and payment.

The Consumer-Purchaser Alliance is co-chaired by the National Partnership and the Pacific Business Group on Health and funded by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
