Quality Health Foundation
A Catalyst for Healthcare Improvement
Since 1973, Quality Health Strategies (QHS) and its predecessors have focused efforts on improving services provided through public programs. The company has seen significant breakthroughs in healthcare treatments and technology. However, there continues to be large gaps between what is available and what is available to all. As members of an organization committed to improving the health of all individuals, QHS believes it is our responsibility to help eliminate these disparities, whether they are caused by lack of access, programs, or ability to pay. Quality Health Foundation (QHF) was founded to support the organizations that work to provide a better quality of life for those who need it most.
Since 2006, QHF has awarded grants totaling more than $2.2 million to 39 organizations in Maryland and the District of Columbia. As the mission arm of QHS, QHF improves the health of individuals and communities by providing charitable grants to organizations that wish to undertake improvement projects. Funding priority is based on a project's potential to impact access to and quality of healthcare and human services to individuals and communities. Projects should also focus on improving outcomes through the use of collaborative approaches. QHF funds projects of many types, including service demonstrations and rapid-cycle change projects that have the potential to produce high measurable impacts on health outcomes. Grants of up to $50,000 may be awarded to eligible organizations, for a one-year funding cycle. Grants may occasionally be extended for a second year.
