CMS NQIIC 2020 Annual Report: Confronting the Pandemic Together

As a valued partner in IPRO QIN-QIO’s quality improvement activities, we are pleased to share with you the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Network of Quality Improvement and Innovation Contractors (NQIIC) 2020 Annual Report: Confronting the Pandemic Together.

The Annual Report highlights the COVID-19 response in nursing homes by Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organizations (QIN-QIOs) during the inaugural year (November 2019 – November 2020) of the NQIIC Program. During this time, 12 QIN-QIOs supported data-driven, innovative efforts from federal, state and local entities to protect nursing home residents and staff amid the pandemic. 

By clicking through the online report, you will be able to:

  • Learn about activities from the past year in the fight against COVID-19
  • Access data on how QIN-QIOs leveraged the CMS COVID-19 toolkit and trainings to improve care and safety in nursing homes
  • Look ahead to future priorities for the NQIIC Program

We encourage you to share the CMS NQIIC 2020 Annual Report with your leadership team, staff and any others who are interested in quality improvement.

We look forward to our continued collaboration working to improve the quality of care for patients and communities throughout New England, New England, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Delaware, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.
