About Us

About the Maine Quality Forum Web Site        

The Maine Quality Forum (MQF) is part of the Dirigo Health Agency and the Dirigo Health Reform. The Governor and the Legislature concluded that consumers needed a reliable resource for information about health maintenance, health care and quality of health care services and health information. The MQF believes that quality of health and health care can only be evaluated as health care relates to the patient. The information here represents our best effort to provide to you the information you need to protect your greatest gift, your health. Consumers, employers, patients, health plans and providers have all come together to improve health and health care quality.  Learn more. Join us.
