Reducing Healthcare-Acquired Conditions in Nursing Homes
More than 1.4 million Americans live in nursing homes. Lake Superior QIN works with nursing homes to improve quality of care and quality of life for residents, reduce healthcare-acquired conditions, and implement Quality Assurance Performance Improvement.
The work of the collaborative complements other national and state initiatives, including Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes Campaign, The Partnership to Improve Dementia Care, and Quality Assurance Performance Improvement (QAPI).
The goal is to improve systems of care that lead to better quality outcomes for your nursing home residents. Targets will include increasing resident mobility, decreasing unnecessary use of antipsychotics in residents with dementia, decreasing potentially avoidable hospitalizations, and decreasing healthcare-acquired infections and conditions.
The collaborative is free. As a participant, you:
The collaborative is a mutual commitment between the QIN and the participating nursing homes. We hope you will join us in this important work to improve health care quality and the lives of residents in nursing homes in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
