Great Plains Quality Innovation Network

Four States

The Kansas Foundation for Medical Care, CIMRO of Nebraska, Quality Health Associates of North Dakota and South Dakota Foundation for Medical Care have aligned to form the Great Plains Quality Innovation Network (Great Plains QIN), a non=profit organization. The Great Plains QIN was established to carry out the work of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) program within Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.

One Commitment

Great Plains QIN uses the collective knowledge and resources of its members to achieve the aims of better health care, improved health, safer care and lower healthcare costs.  Each of the four Great Plains QIN partners has a long history of working collaboratively together, serving as their state’s QIO. Each organization will continue their focus on improving care in conjunction with state partners, while pooling resources and common elements into an organization that can best serve the needs of healthcare providers and Medicare consumers across the region.
