The Engaging in Quality Initiative helps participants address quality of care issues through Webinars and other online tools. Our expert presenters will help you better understand and implement the newest and most successful processes to improve quality and outcomes while keeping an eye on the bottom line.

Our team has studied the successes and challenges of existing learning collaboratives, including groups like Aligning Forces for Quality and Safer Healthcare Now, to design a program that will empower your staff to begin improving quickly at a reasonable cost.
 
Connect with other nonprofit organizations and get the support and skills you need to transform your organization into a Learning Organization. You will give your key leaders the skills to succeed, work with experts, utilize resources as well as gain skills and knowledge on getting staff buy-in, their engagement AND reduce hospitalization rates: the key measure of home health quality. 
What is the Issue - Reduce Hospitalization Rates
There is a transformation underway in health care today. The most important change is that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) appear to be moving to a value-based purchasing (VBP) program, which would base reimbursement on quality of care. While this change would link quality to reimbursement, the reimbursement model is not available and does not currently have a clear link to quality. Additional changes underway include the growth of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), care coordination models and bundling demonstration programs that are seeking partners to collaborate with improving patient clinical care while saving costs. The aim of these programs is to hold providers accountable for the quality of care and to promote effective and efficient care processes.
