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.

The New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) has selected six organizations across the State for grant awards totaling more than $728,000 to help them adopt or spread OpenNotes. OpenNotes is an international movement to give patients access to the visit notes written by their doctors, nurses, or other clinicians. These awards will support federally qualified health centers, multispecialty group practices, hospital-affiliated physician groups, independent physician practices, and other non-hospital health care settings statewide in implementing OpenNotes.
The Bipartisan Policy Center, with the support of the Leona B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, hosted an educational discussion on August 13.
