Alliance for Quality Nursing Home Care Praises CMS Release of Updated Special Focus Facilities (SFF) List

Action Further Spotlights Sector's Leadership in Improving Transparency, Expanding Public Disclosure

WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement by Alan G. Rosenbloom, President of the Alliance for Quality Nursing Home Care, praising the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) release today of an expanded list of long term care facilities in need of improvement:

"Nursing home providers have led the healthcare sector in improving transparency and expanding the public disclosure of key quality data that empowers consumers. The Alliance supports the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) initiative to release and regularly update its SFF list to provide the public with better information upon which to make health care choices, and is particularly pleased that CMS will include information concerning facilities that have demonstrated significant and sustained quality improvement as well.

"The collaborative government-provider quality improvement programs now successfully underway -- such as the Advancing Excellence campaign -- are indeed bringing about greater transparency, increased accountability, and quality improvement. This is beneficial to consumers, nursing home providers, regulatory authorities, and lawmakers.

"The Alliance is pleased with the pace of improved quality measurement standards in the nursing home sector. Providers are cognizant of their responsibility to continue being a catalyst for the innovations that enhance consumer knowledge and choice, and are committed to continue improving the quality of long term care for the benefit of every American."
