CMS Awards Qualis Health Five-Year Contracts to Lead Quality Innovation Network for Idaho and Washington
Date:7/21/2014

by providing technical assistance, convening learning and action networks for sharing best practices, and collecting and analyzing data for improvement. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) National Quality Strategy and the CMS Quality Strategy provide the framework for the contracts.

Specifically, each QIN-QIO will work on strategic initiatives such as reducing healthcare associated infections, reducing readmissions and medication errors, working with nursing homes to improve care for residents, supporting clinical practices in using interoperable health information technology to enable the exchange of essential health information to improve the coordination of care, promoting prevention activities, reducing cardiac disease and diabetes, reducing healthcare disparities and improving patient and family engagement.

The QIO program has proven successful during the current contracts covering the 2011–2014 period:

  •     Supporting nursing homes in achieving a 34% reduction in pressure ulcers among residents
  •     Preventing potential adverse drug events, with more than 44,000 such events avoided
  •     Contributing to a 53% reduction in hospital infections
  •     Saving more than 100,000 people from being admitted or readmitted to a hospital, resulting in improved coordination of care and nearly one billion dollar in savings (although the savings estimated are not solely attributable to QIOs)

With these new contracts, Qualis Health welcomes participation by all who want to contribute to better care, better health and lower costs through improvement. For more information, visit http://www.Medicare.QualisHealth.org.
