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.

OpenNotes is a national effort to give patients access to visit notes written by their doctors, nurses, or other clinicians. New York State Health Foundation has issued a request for proposals to implement the OpenNotes model at federally qualified health centers, multispecialty group practices, hospital-affiliated physician groups, independent physician practices, and other health care settings across New York State.
