Focus On Quality - GIH Skip Navigation

Quality

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.

April 2018


Seventeen health care organizations have been selected as partners for the California Health Care Foundation’s California Improvement Network (CIN). Collectively, these organizations serve or support more than 20.6 million patients across the state – more than half the population of California. This diverse group of health care delivery systems, plans, payers, and quality improvement organizations shapes network activities, builds connections, translates information to action, and encourages others to engage with the network in an effort to improve health care delivery in California.

In March 2018, a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators invited feedback on a new initiative to improve health care price and information transparency. The New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) submitted comments based on the their efforts to empower health care consumers, make the health care system more transparent, and arm consumers with information on price and quality.
