Focus On Quality - GIH Skip Navigation


As noted in the Institute of Medicine’s seminal report Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century, “health care today harms too frequently and routinely fails to deliver its potential benefits.” For over a decade, foundations have been showcasing to the field that improving health care quality is both needed and possible. GIH recognizes that this work is now an integral part of the health reform law and that bridging the “quality chasm” will require change at all levels of our health care system.

August 2019

The Commonwealth Fund has long tracked premature death as a way to measure the effectiveness of care delivery. A new Commonwealth Fund blog post explores ways the U.S. can reduce the number of people dying prematurely: by expanding insurance coverage, by making care more affordable, and by strengthening primary care.
