State Health and Value Strategies (SHVS)

State Health and Value Strategies (SHVS) is a program committed to providing technical assistance to support state efforts to enhance the quality and value of health care by improving population health and reforming the delivery of care services. SHVS connects states with experts and their peers to develop tools to undertake new quality improvement initiatives. The program places an emphasis on building systems capacity, engaging stakeholders, and promoting payment and purchasing reforms. The program leverages relationships developed with state officials in two established RWJF programs, Aligning Forces for Quality and the State Health Reform Assistance Network, in order to share lessons learned, highlight successful strategies, and bring together states and stakeholders motivated to improve health care through quality, value, and payment reforms.
