The Partnership is the first statewide effort of its kind to focus specifically on patients – helping them to play a greater role in improving the quality of their health care.
The goals of the Partnership are threefold:
- To educate the public about the variations in health care quality;
- To provide consumers with the information and tools they need to improve the quality of their own care; and
- To motivate consumers to advocate for overall health care system change such as increased use of electronic medical records and e-prescribing.
