A Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement OrganizationImplementing data-driven initiatives to improve healthcare quality
What We Do
Great Plains QIN works with healthcare providers and communities to implement data-driven quality initiatives to improve healthcare. We offer technical assistance, tailored education, best practices, tools and resources. Through these efforts, we intend to improve patient safety, reduce harm and improve clinical care at the local and regional levels.
The alliance with the Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota QIOs also offers greater opportunities to collaborate with and learn from providers across state lines while maintaining access to local resources.
During the next five years of our CMS contract, our activities will focus on the following areas:
2015 QIO Program Progress Report Released
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has published the 2015 Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) Program Progress Report.
The Progress Report provides information on the QIN-QIO Program and includes success stories highlighting the importance of national, state and local partnerships that leverage mutual resources for maximum effectiveness and impact. In addition, the report aims to encourage further partner participation in quality improvement initiatives and knowledge-sharing opportunities.
We are partnering with stakeholders, providers, Medicare consumers and improvement experts in an “all teach, all learn” Learning and Action Network (LAN) model. Through the LANs, the Great Plains QIN offers educational webinars and conferences, encourage peer sharing, rapid testing of change ideas and support for adapting and spreading successful improvements. We are very excited about this opportunity. Join today and become a Learning and Action Network partner.
