The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is seeking public input in the
development of a National Health Care Quality Strategy and Plan. The National Quality
Strategy will be a comprehensive strategic plan and the identification of priorities to improve
the delivery of health care services, patient health outcomes, and population health.
The National Quality Strategy is intended to be a living and changing guide for the federal government, as well as for states and the private sector.
A briefing was posted on www.hhs.gov outlining the initial thinking regarding the plan and includes specific areas where feedback would be particularly valuable.
To provide feedback, go directly to the HHS.gov website. Alternatively,
you may submit comments electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. Written
comments may also be submitted and should be addressed to the Agency for Healthcare
Research and Quality, Attention: Nancy Wilson - Room 3216,540 Gaither Road Rockville, MD
20850 or faxed to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Attention: Nancy Wilson at
(301) 427-1210. All comments should be received no later than 5 p.m. on October 15,2010.
