Serious Illness Quality Alignment Hub

The Serious Illness Quality Alignment Hub (the Hub) is a coordinated effort to develop a national strategic plan to incentivize and/or require delivery of high-quality care for people living with serious illness and their families.

The Hub is a three-year effort of the Center to Advance Palliative Care, coordinated with the National Quality Forum and funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. It has four tracks, each focused on developing requirements and/or incentives for access to high-quality palliative care for appropriate patient populations: investigating opportunities across multiple accountability domains; evaluating the feasibility and impact of a range of accountability levers; identifying and addressing measurement gaps, including defining the denominator of patients appropriate for palliative care interventions; and coordinating a number of national efforts to improve access to quality palliative care for people living with serious illness and their families.
