Our Work

From 2014-2019, the atom Alliance initiative, facilitated by Qsource in partnership with AQAF and IQH, focused on improving health and healthcare by addressing these three primary aims: better patient care, better population health, and lower health care costs through improvement. Together, we worked hand-in-hand with healthcare providers and communities on data-driven initiatives across a five-state region [AL, IN, KY, MS, TN], providing technical assistance, convening learning and action networks to share best practices and collecting and analyzing data to identify and implement quality improvement interventions.
