AF healthcare service and delivery measures look at current trends with patient care regarding lifestyle risks and behavioral health during routine visits. Outcomes prove that AF’s performance is steadily improving with comparable results to Health Care Data and Information (HCDI) 90th percentile benchmark and a mission to meet and exceed Healthy People 2010 goals (NIST, 2006).

The framework also indicated how ERM will encourage risk management authorities to define and adapt the basic structural elements to fit specific organizational needs, something that would potentially benefit AF as a thriving healthcare organization in an outpatient environment.
