What is the RightCare Alliance?
The American healthcare system is broken.
Healthcare is expensive and wasteful, yet the US ranks poorly on nearly all health outcomes. It is disorganized, frustrating, and unsafe. And it fails to protect the most vulnerable. In countless ways, patients are harmed by the very system that is meant to make them well.
Be a part of the solution.
The Lown Institute’s RightCare Alliance initiative is the first grassroots social movement that brings together health professionals, religious and community groups, and the public. Together we are working toward a society in which the right care is accessible by all. We believe this will be made possible through a collaborative process that engages local healthcare institutions and the community in the stewardship of resources for health.
“I feel [the Lown Institute is] an island of sanity in a healthcare system that badly, badly needs that.”
–Don Berwick, former Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
