MHA is encouraging its member hospitals to show their exemplary work to a national audience by applying for the American Hospital Association’s (AHA’s) Quest for Quality prize.
The “Q4Q” prize focuses on five core principles of hospitals or their collaborations with their communities:
Access: To affordable, equitable health, behavioral, and social services
Health: Focus on holistic well-being in partnership with community resources
Innovation: Seamless care propelled by teams, technology, innovation and data
Affordability: The best care that adds value to lives
Individual as Partner: Recognize the diversity of individuals and serve as partners in their health.
There are different applications for individual hospitals and for health systems but only one winner will be chosen (and presented with $75,000), along with up to two $12,500 finalists and up to four citations of merit. Click here for more information and the application.
