Throughout the evaluation of the AF4Q initiative the evaluation team will conduct key stakeholder interviews in each of the communities. These interviews are conducted with representatives from four groups: (1) alliance leadership team members; (2) alliance staff; (3) key external stakeholders; and (4) individuals involved with implementing measure collection, quality improvement efforts, and public reporting systems.

Site visit interviews in the communities consist of several question modules and average 60 minutes in length. In addition, follow-up phone interviews with alliance staff most directly involved in alliance activities occur every 6 months and measure selection, public reporting, incentive programs, and consumer engagement initiatives are conducted bi-annually.
