About the QLAs

For more than 20 years, CAPH/SNI has delivered the Quality Leaders Awards (QLAs) to recognize outstanding initiatives across California’s public health care systems. The QLAs honor the good work underway to achieve members’ collective 2020 vision:

By 2020, public health care systems will become models of integrated care that are high value, high quality, patient-centered, efficient and equitable, with great patient experience and a demonstrated ability to improve health care and the health status of populations.

The Goals of the QLAs are to:

  • Showcase forward-thinking and innovative approaches in California’s public health care systems to address the health care needs of the communities they serve
  • Encourage the spread of effective strategies that improve the quality of care and advance population health
  • Recognize the dedicated and talented professionals working in public health care systems.
