Adding Quality to the Mix

Changing Healthcare By Improving Healthcare Value And Cost Better Care, Smarter Spending And Healthier People

New Mexicans have always stepped up to a challenge, and in 2015, a small but dedicated group is working to make a difference in healthcare.

The group has done what a few months ago we thought would be impossible – transformed into a purchaser-led, multi-stakeholder, nonprofit coalition – the New Mexico Coalition for Healthcare Value. We have evolved from a nationally funded grant program to one that is financed and operated by those it serves – healthcare providers, employers and health plans. We have made this leap through member acknowledgement of past success and a vision for success.

The firm base laid through Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q) galvanized the new group. That group, the New Mexico Coalition for Healthcare Quality (NMCHCQ) – supported by the nonprofit HealthInsight of New Mexico– came about in 2009 to align multi-stakeholders in transforming healthcare focused on improving quality and decreasing costs of healthcare in New Mexico.
