Quality Center

Welcome to NACHC’s Quality Center! We strive to help health centers build healthier communities for people of all backgrounds by transforming care.

About Us

The Quality Center advances health outcomes, patient and staff experience, and lower costs. We work with primary care associations, health center-controlled networks, and health center leaders, providers, and staff from across the country to improve care. Our activities include:

  • Driving national dialogue on value transformation and innovation among community health centers
  • Convening diverse stakeholders to inform models, measurement, and collective vision for health care improvement and innovation
  • Synthesizing and disseminating evidence-based and promising practices for health care quality
  • Leading programs that pilot and scale strategies for better public health and patient/staff experience
  • Researching the impact of improvement strategies in community health centers
  • Training and coaching community health centers in systems transformation
  • Serving as a trusted partner to health centers, primary care associations, health center-controlled networks, and patients

Our work

The Quality Center developed the Value Transformation Framework to guide health center transformation. This conceptual model underpins a range of innovative initiatives, including learning forums and professional development opportunities, and free resources.
