Reducing Healthcare-Acquired Conditions in Nursing Homes
The states of Michigan (MPRO), Minnesota (Stratis Health), and Wisconsin (MetaStar) have come together as Lake Superior QIN to work on quality improvement in nursing homes as part of a five-year Quality Improvement Network contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS),
Our QIN invites all nursing homes in the three-state region to participate in the National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative (NNHQCC). The NNHQCC will instill quality and performance improvement practices in nursing homes, eliminate healthcare acquired conditions, and improve resident satisfaction.
Quality improvement requires a team. When you join the National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative, your peers and Lake Superior QIN will be your partners as you choose goals that are informed by data you have collected in your nursing home, share information with your peers, and implement quality improvement methods that are evidence-based.
