Maximize Free Resources to Improve Clinical Quality
Today’s nursing homes are facing numerous challenges to improve clinical outcomes while continuing to deliver care in a person-centered manner.
The TMF Quality Innovation Network Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO), under contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, continues to recruit nursing homes in Texas to offer free technical assistance and resources to address these challenges and other clinical topics.
The TMF QIN-QIO works with Texas nursing homes to reach targeted goals, including, but not limited to:
Working in two 18-month collaboratives, the TMF QIN-QIO quality improvement staff also assist Texas nursing homes to develop QAPI plans, performance improvement plans, and interventions on clinical areas identified as opportunities for improvement. The staff coach nursing homes as they transition to a continuous quality improvement organization. Using the 13 long-stay quality measures as a guide, TMF staff work with nursing homes to identify opportunities to focus on improvement efforts, develop interventions and offer free resources and tools. Additionally, TMF staff host regular educational webinars, which provide up-to-date, evidence-based information and interventions nursing home teams can quickly and easily implement. Peer-to-peer sharing is encouraged throughout the collaborative.
For more information about the collaboratives and working with the TMF QIN-QIO, download our nursing home project fact sheet (PDF). To participate in this project, please complete the Letter of Participation and Executive Agreement (PDF) and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with any questions about this great opportunity. Together we can improve the quality of care delivery to nursing home residents.
