Aligning Forces for Quality/Willamette Valley
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.
Oregon Health Care Quality Corporation (the Alliance) leads the area's AF4Q initiative. For more information on the Alliance, visit their
