Who We Are

Great Plains Quality Innovation Network (QIN) is the Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) for Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. The development of Great Plains QIN reflects changes to legislation that impacts the structure of the QIO program. 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 this not-for-profit organization. Each of these organizations has a long history of working collaboratively together, serving as their state’s QIO and improving the quality and efficiency of healthcare in the region.

 

Our Goals:

  • Promote effective prevention and treatment of chronic disease
  • Make care safer by reducing harm caused in the delivery of care
