The Home Health Quality Improvement (HHQI) National Campaign is a grassroots movement designed to unite home health stakeholders and multiple health care settings under the shared vision of reducing avoidable hospitalizations and improving medication management.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has contracted with WVMI & Quality Insights to lead this national initiative across settings. CMS administers the Medicare program. As the contractor for the first HHQI Campaign, WVMI (West Virginia Medical Institute) & Quality Insights is proud to work again with this initiative of Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to improve home health quality.
The campaign goals include improving the rate associated with acute care hospitalizations (reducing avoidable hospitalizations) and management of oral medications for home health patients. Although the campaign is led by the home health community, partnerships are being formed with other provider groups such as hospitals and physicians’ offices. At the focal point of the educational efforts is new multimedia Best Practice Intervention Packages designed to educate home health agencies.
Cooper Home Health is excited to be a part of the new and enhanced Home Health Quality Improvement (HHQI) National Campaign. For more information, visit http://www.homehealthquality.org/hh/default.aspx
