Aligning Forces for Quality Launches Next Phase

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) announced last week that it will award grants of $1.3 million to 16 regional health care organizations through its Aligning Forces for Quality initiative, RWJF’s signature effort to lift the quality of U.S. health care. The latest round of grants marks the onset of the third phase of Aligning Forces.

Begun in 2006, Aligning Forces works to improve health care by engaging patients, publicly reporting the performance of local providers and improving the quality of care delivered in each community. In addition to building on its previous successes, Aligning Forces alliances nationwide will now focus on developing and testing models for paying providers based on the value—not volume—of services delivered.
