Our Work

At the Quality Institute, we promote quality improvement by working with our members, policymakers, grant funders, local leaders, and other stakeholders. To achieve our mission, we research and develop policies, provide educational opportunities, and actively partner with local health care champions to improve community health. Take a look at our work and join us in improving the safety, quality, and affordability of health care for everyone in New Jersey.

The Healthy Town Application is Open!

A Healthy Town designation is a great honor for towns, achieved through a competitive process. This annual designation is not given to a set number of MWC towns but, rather, to all MWC towns who apply and meet the high standards defined in the Healthy Town Rubric.

Awardees receive signage for their town hall, are promoted in the media through press releases and a wide-spread social media campaign, featured in an article for the New Jersey State League of Municipalities magazine and on the Quality Institute’s website, and are highlighted in our newsletter to over 1,000 government, industry and community leaders across New Jersey. New this year, Healthy Town Designees will be invited to attend a Healthy Town Reception, featuring a special keynote speaker, to celebrate your hard work and all communities that have achieved a Healthy Town status for 2019.

Reducing costs and improving quality are not opposing goals. The U.S. is a shining example of innovation and technology, but that should not obscure the fact that for many, the level of care is substandard and often unnecessary. The Quality Institute is using our data to share that message and help drive down costs and improve quality.
