NCHQA is working to improve the quality of health care.
NCHQA's mission is to dramatically improve the delivery of health care in North Carolina and the health of all North Carolinians.
NCHQA is a collaboration of virtually all the leaders in the delivery of medical care in North Carolina. The Board of Directors consists of members appointed by the Governor and other public officials, various medical societies, insurers, the state hospital association, the North Carolina Foundation for Advanced Health Programs, and Community Care of North Carolina. It also includes representatives of academic medical centers, business, consumers, and other key players dedicated to improving care. NCHQA was initially organized under the auspices of the Governor, and now operates as an independent non-profit organization.
Our unique strength is the broad participation by physicians, hospitals, payers, business, academics, and other key health care entities. We seek to provide the trusted place where all can work together to improve critical components of health care delivery. We seek nothing less than transformation of the health care delivery system.
NCHQA has three core goals:
- Provide leadership for the improvement of health care delivery in North Carolina.
- Promote and facilitate transparency and public accountability.
- Foster innovative and sustainable activities and interventions that improve the quality and value of health care.
