The last module explored quality of care initiatives being implemented throughout the country. Continuing this theme, this module explored the various national priorities that help drive efforts to promote individual and population health. This discussion seeks to explore the relationships between these national priorities, the quality of care efforts they have mandated, and how these efforts should impact health care outcomes. In at least 250 words:
Select a Healthy People 2020 goal that has meaning to you and clearly describe the HP2020, including the target proportion in the population.
Identify at least two of the major architects of quality care initiatives (i.e., who is mandating and/or funding the initiatives) that target this goal.
Describe a quality initiative targeting that issue and explain how that initiative should impact health outcomes.
In the replies, share another initiative or identify something else that could be done to further promote achieving the HP2020 goal.
