HEALTH CARE REFORM IN ACTION: How Will Health Insurance Exchanges Improve Quality?
Health insurance exchanges aren’t just an opportunity to expand access to health insurance. They also offer states a number of options to drive quality improvement and delivery system reform.
Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q) is the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s signature effort to lift the overall quality of health care in 16 targeted communities, as well as reduce racial and ethnic disparities and provide tested local models that help propel national reform.
Quick on the heels of the Supreme Court's Affordable Care Act ruling, the Department of Health and Human Services announced new funding to help states continue implementing health insurance exchanges. As states and the federal government work to create exchanges, lessons from Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q), and other resources from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation can inform these efforts.
