Better Health, Smarter Spending, Healthier People


Quality Insights is the Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) for New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Louisiana. We are committed to collaborating with you to reach the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' goals of better care, smarter spending, and healthier people.

A Commitment to Quality Improvement


As a QIN-QIO, Quality Insights focuses exclusively on quality improvement and technical assistance in our five-state Network. 

We collaborate with patients, providers and stakeholders on multiple, data-driven quality initiatives to improve patient safety, reduce harm, and improve clinical care locally and across the network.  We offer skills and assistance in:

• Transforming practice
• Employing lean methodologies
• Assisting with value based purchasing programs
• Developing innovative approaches to quality improvement

Get Involved: Together We Can Make a Difference


Quality Insights is offering free learning and networking opportunities, technical assistance and best practice tools and resources in support of data-driven quality initiatives designed to improve patient safety, reduce harm, and positively impact clinical care locally and across the network.
 
Many of Quality Insights services come in the form of Learning and Action Networks (LAN), peer groups where participants hear from experts and each other, share successes and lessons learned and have access to customized data reports, showing their performance compared to the Network, national averages and more. 
 
Quality Insights has formed LANs to improve cardiac care, diabetes care, and adult vaccination rates and to lower incidences of healthcare acquired conditions, such as pressure ulcers, and inappropriate antibiotic use.  
 
Quality Insights is also offering LANs related to the use of health care technology and quality reporting, and we  have formed community coalitions to improve effective communication and coordination of care.

Finally we are offering special projects focused on topics such as improving appropriate prescribing and usage of opioids, helping more people take advantage of Medicare's Annual Wellness Visit, and improving palliative care for patients with heart failure. 

Joining us is a simple as visiting the "Get Local" tab of this Web site and finding a project coordinator in your state.
