It’s a move to improve quality in Oregon’s hospitals.   The State Association of Hospitals and the Oregon Health Care Quality Corporation are creating a new network. It’s called the Aligning Forces for Quality Hospital Network. “Through the Robert Way Johnson Foundation and their specific hospital quality network, they have provided a chance for hospitals to participate in a virtual collaborative effort on three areas of focus within a hospital.”  The goal is to improve care to diverse patients, reduce the wait time in emergency rooms, and ensuring patients do not have to come back for treatment.   Quality Services Director Diane Waldo says access to evidence based "best care" practices and national experts should help hospitals become more successful. Saint Charles in Bend and Redmond are participating, as well as the hospital in Prineville.
