We want to help patients acquire the information, skills, and confidence to live well and effectively manage their health and healthcare.

atom Alliance partners work with healthcare providers and practitioners to customize programs for patients and families and align with the needs and culture of the local community.

BE HEARD: We want to learn from patients’ experiences receiving health services, so we can help providers deliver patient-centered care. Consider becoming a Patient or Family Advisor.

BE ACTIVE: Take part in one of our local Learning and Action Networks (LAN). Together our quality improvement work with local healthcare providers contributes to safer, more effective care for you, your neighbors and loved ones.
