National Quality Strategy Priorities in Action

The latest edition of the National Quality Strategy's Priorities in Action features Building a Healthier Chicago, a consortium of several hundred stakeholders who convened to address the health of Chicagoans by creating a culture of healthy living in major social settings, including worksites, faith communities, schools, and restaurants. Activities include working to improve the accessibility of healthy food and providing the tools necessary to make meaningful long-term lifestyle and policy changes.

Building a Healthier Chicago's initiatives align with the National Quality Strategy by promoting the wide use of best practices to enable healthy living in major social settings through learning and technical assistance, certification, accreditation and regulation, incentives and benefit design, and innovation and diffusion.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 mandated the National Quality Strategy, first published in March 2011. AHRQ leads it on behalf of HHS.
