Through our long term care and Partnerships for Community Health work, the Alliant team leads community-based efforts to increase the safety and quality of health care provided in local communities and to reduce the burden associated with achieving that quality.  Partnering with providers in each participating community, we drive specific, results-oriented quality improvement by engaging key stakeholders in community health to work together toward a common goal across settings and levels of care with a focus on improving community-based care transitions.  We connect health care providers and community-based organizations and support the CMS Quality Goals with innovative, evidence-based, data-driven interventions that maximize meaningful patient and family engagement and address the social determinants of health.
