We are a non-profit business working to improve healthcare quality. The patient is at the center of everything we do. We achieve our objective in two ways. One, we give patients the tools to be better informed and to actively participate in their own healthcare. And two, we give providers the technical assistance they need to deliver safe, effective and efficient care. This is our mission and we are passionate about it.
