$1.3 Million is Awarded to Continue Phase 3 of AF4Q

AF4Q – South Central PA is excited to announce that the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation designated $1.3 million to the organization to continue its efforts of lifting quality care in York and Adams counties.
 
“We are excited that we are able to continue bringing together community leaders, patients, doctors, nurses, employers and insurers to improve health care in York and Adams counties,” said AF4Q – South Central PA’s Project Director, Christine Amy. “Given today’s complicated health care system, some may see it as impossible to change, but over the past few years we have accomplished great results, and look forward to continuing our efforts. We are eager to continue down this path of discovering and implementing best practices to provide better quality care.”
 
With the additional funding, AF4Q – South Central PA will continue to empower patients to take action to improve their health and communicate the importance of measuring and improving quality.
 
More specifically, AF4Q – South Central PA will focus its funds on selected areas of care (diabetes, heart failure and vascular diseases), health information technology, data measurement, consumer education and patient engagement, reduction of avoidable hospitalizations and emergency department visits, and payment reform.

AF4Q – South Central PA thanks everyone involved for their support and continuous effort in making a difference. We encourage those who haven’t become a part of AF4Q to join us as we enter the next two years of innovative ideas. Contact Christine Amy to be a part of AF4Q – South Central PA (camy@wellspan.org).
