CMS Publishes Quality in Motion: An Update on the National Quality Strategy

Quality in Motion: Acting on the CMS National Quality Strategy is CMS’s latest update to the 2022 National Quality Strategy, which was launched to improve the quality and safety of health care for everyone, focusing on those from underserved and under-resourced communities. In the action plan, you will learn how CMS is putting quality-focused goals into motion in four priority areas:  

  • Outcomes and Alignment 
  • Equity and Engagement 
  • Safety and Resiliency 
  • Interoperability and Scientific Advancement 

The new action plan includes a call for payers to improve quality in high-priority clinical areas and reduce provider burden by implementing the Universal Foundation, including the newly published hospital, maternity care, and post-acute care/long-term care add-on sets.
