The Institute for Quality and Patient Safety of the New Jersey Hospital Association in Princeton, N.J., has received a planning grant of $199,502 from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to develop a proposal for improving healthcare quality in New Jersey.
During the next six months of meetings, the grant program will determine whether the state can be included in the RWJF initiative, “Aligning Forces for Quality.” This initiative is focused on raising healthcare quality in target communities, reducing healthcare disparities, and providing models of healthcare for the nation.

The institute will be the leadership organization for the project and Aline Holmes, senior vice president of Clinical Affairs for the institute, is the project director and Peter A. Gross, MD, of Hackensack University Medical Center, is the project co-director.
