Current Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization Project Has Ended


Since July 2014, Quality Insights has been privileged to support your quality improvement efforts under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' (CMS) Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) program. Our current five-year contract to provide QIN-QIO services ended on July 17. This means we will not be scheduling learning and action network (LAN) meetings or providing individualized technical assistance until CMS begins a new QIN-QIO contract cycle later this year.
 
CMS is in the process of reviewing proposal submissions and intends to announce awards between September and November. The next five-year initiative will bring together nursing homes and broad community coalitions to focus on improving behavioral health/decreasing opioid misuse, increasing patient safety, increasing chronic disease self-management (cardiac and vascular health, diabetes, slowing End Stage Renal Disease), increasing quality of care transitions, and improving nursing home quality.
 
In the interim, we are committed to helping you achieve your quality improvement goals. All of our tools and resources will continue to be available on our website, and a quality improvement advisor will be reaching out to you in the next few weeks to discuss ways we can continue to collaborate during the static period and after contract award.
 
We also encourage you to contact us with any thoughts you may have about how we can be of assistance. Please send comments through our contact us form or call 800.642.8686. Also, use these points of contact to let us know if you have a specific need or question.  
 
Finally, note that if you participate in any of Quality Insights' other programs, your services will continue without disruption. This includes Quality Payment Program-Small, Underserved and Rural Support (QPP-SURS), End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Networks, and state-based grants.
 
We sincerely thank you for collaborating with us during the past five years to advance the National Quality Strategy and its goals of better care, smarter spending, and healthier people. Together, we have made great strides. We look forward to continuing our work with you in the future.
