Quality Improvement Quality Toolbox


The National Partnership for Women & Families provides technical assistance for Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s effort to improve the overall quality of health care in targeted communities, reduce racial and ethnic disparities, and provide models for national reform. The initiative includes advocating for doctors and hospitals to systematically develop solutions to prevent misuse, overuse, and underuse of health care, and pinpointing how health professionals can serve patients better from the patient and consumer perspectives.

The Quality Improvement Quality Toolbox includes many resources, including:

  • Fact sheets for ensuring high quality affordable health care
    • Measuring and reporting on the quality and costs of care to create a transparent health care system
    • Providing tools that help consumers make good health care decisions
    • Rewarding providers who deliver better care
    • Encouraging the rapid adoption of health information technology
    • Creating a health care system that delivers the right care at the right time in the right setting
    • Ensuring our health care system provides high quality care for everyone
  • Patient-centered medical home toolkit
  • Foundational principles for gaining consumer trust and acceptance of health information technology
