What's Next?

Our team is eagerly waiting to get started facilitating change and improvement across our region. The Great Plains Quality Care Coalition will be the platform. Individuals receiving care, community leaders and healthcare professionals will be at the table; working together to make care more accessible, safer and more affordable.

There is significant potential for progress with an emphasis on the national priority aims.

National Priority Aims:

  1. Improve Behavioral Health Outcomes, focusing on Decreased Opioid Misuse
  2. Increase Patient Safety
  3. Increase Chronic Disease Self-Management
  4. Increase Quality of Care Transitions
  5. Improve Nursing Home Quality

Coalition partners will have access to expertise and technical assistance, best practices, data and tools. Education and training will support participants in achieving set quality improvement aims. Together, we will identify opportunities to develop a sustainable, efficient and effective model for utilizing data, resources and technology to impact positive health outcomes. Coalition efforts will continue through 2024.

Upon contract award, we will be soliciting and securing interest for Community Coalition partners. If you are not currently a Learning and Action Network Partner, sign up today to ensure receipt of timely information and updates.

CMS is continuing to manage and facilitate the transition from the current Quality Improvement Organization program contract to the launch of new priority health aims. In the meantime, visit the Great Plains QIN website for more information on current efforts and upcoming opportunities.
