The Health Care Improvement Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit corporation that leads healthcare initiatives aimed at improving the safety, outcomes, and care experiences of all patients, residents and consumers across the five-county greater Philadelphia region. It is dedicated to the vision that, through an engaged, collaborative community, the region benefits from a high-performing healthcare delivery system demonstrating enhanced measures of safety, quality, and effectiveness.   The foundation engages multi-stakeholder resources to implement solutions that no market participant could achieve individually.

The Partnership for Patient Care (PPC) is a collaborative dedicated to the advancement of patient care by accelerating the adoption of evidence-based clinical practices. Funded by Independence Blue Cross and the region's health systems, the partnership achieves its goals by pooling the resources, knowledge, and efforts of local healthcare providers.

Independence Blue Cross is a leading health insurer in Southeastern Pennsylvania. IBC and its affiliates provide coverage to nearly 3.3 million people. For more than 70 years, Independence Blue Cross has offered high-quality healthcare coverage tailored to meet the changing needs of members, employers, and healthcare professionals. Independence Blue Cross is an independent licensee of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, an association of independent Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans.
