Aligning Forces for Quality/Albuquerque
The Americans for Quality Health Care Team works with the Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q) Alliances.
AF4Q is the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s (RWJF) signature effort to lift the overall quality of health care in targeted communities, reduce racial and ethnic disparities and provide models for national reform.
AF4Q asks the people who get care, give care and pay for care to work together toward common, fundamental objectives to lead to better care.
The Albuquerque Coalition 4 Healthcare Quality (the Alliance) leads the area’s AF4Q initiative. For more information on the Alliance, visit their web site.
The participation of consumer organizations in health care quality initiatives is critical to effect patient-centered changes in our health care system.
