AMGA Foundation’s Best Practices
Learning Collaboratives provide a
forum for medical groups and expert
advisors to identify and elevate
solutions for patients with chronic
and preventable conditions, as
well as for operational challenges.
Our Collaboratives have touched
on numerous chronic care issues
ranging from adult immunizations
to obesity. We’re proud to announce
two new Collaboratives in 2019:
F T2G Bundle Collaborative: In
January 2019, 10 organizations
were selected to participate in
the T2G Bundle Collaborative. The
Collaborative is an expansion of
AMGA’s recent six-month pilot
initiative to improve the diabetes
bundle measure and offers AMGA
member organizations enrolled
in the Together 2 Goal® campaign
the opportunity to augment
and accelerate the pace of their
quality improvement work. It will
utilize the proven, successful
framework of AMGA Foundation’s
