Together, we can

 

As a Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organizations, we spread best practices for better care while accommodating local settings and cultural factors. No matter what health condition we focus on, our overarching goals are always the same: better care, smarter spending, healthier people.
 
We offer quality improvement expertise and technical assistance to healthcare providers and partners located in the network of states we serve. Our data-driven quality initiatives engage patients, families and clinicians to improve patient safety, reduce harm and improve clinical care.
