Major Changes to the CMS Quality
Improvement Organization Program
 The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) separated medical
case review from quality improvement work creating two separate
structures:
› Medical case review to be performed by Beneficiary Family Centered
Care Quality Improvement Organizations (BFCC-QIOs)
› Quality improvement and technical assistance QIOs to be performed by
Quality Innovation Network Quality Improvement Organizations (QINQIOs)
› Note: Both types of contracts cannot be held by the same organization
 BFCC-QIOs are organized among five geographic areas across the Nation.
 QIN-QIOs are regional and cover up to six states and/or territories.
 The QIO contract cycle will be extended from 3 to 5 years.

Improving Cardiac Health & Reducing
Cardiac Healthcare Disparities: The Data
 Heart disease and stroke are the first- and fourthleading causes of death, respectively, according to
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
 Congestive heart failure is the second most frequent
diagnosis related group (DRG) related to 30-day
hospital readmissions
 Morbidity and mortality data suggests the risks are
far greater for racial and ethnic populations than
whites
13
The Cardiac Project
 Work with providers and beneficiaries in collaboration with
key partners and stakeholders
 Work together in a Cardiac Learning and Action Network
 Target racial and ethnic minority Medicare beneficiaries, dual
eligible and providers practitioners who serve them

attacks and strokes by 2017
 Focus on evidenced-base: ABCS (ASA, BP, Cholesterol, Smoking
Cessation)
14
The Cardiac Project: Targeted Providers
› Home health agencies
• Participate in Cardiovascular Data Registry, Home Health Quality
Improvement (HHQI) Campaign
› Practitioner owned and operated offices and clinics
› Other facilities where physician, nurse practitioner,
physicians assistant oversight is provided
› Providers, practitioners required to be Physician Quality
Reporting System (PQRS) aligned
› Providers, practitioners who serve racial and ethnic
minorities
15
Cardiovascular Health Network
Home Health Agencies (HHAs)
We help HHAs sign up for the Cardiovascular Data Registry, developed through
the Home Health Quality Improvement National Campaign, in order to track
progress related to the ABCS (Aspirin therapy, Blood pressure management,
Cholesterol control and Smoking/Tobacco cessation).
Utilize the Best
Practice Intervention
Packages (BPIPs) to

› 70 percent identified as smokers receive smoking cessation
counseling
17
Reducing Disparities in Diabetes Care:
Everyone with Diabetes Counts: The Data
 Our first project focused on the Hispanic and Native American
populations and revealed that from the time of diagnosis to
the time our participants were receiving Diabetes SelfManagement Education (DSME) was...
7 – 13 years
 Our current project with African-Americans reveals that only
2.9 percent of those with Medicare and diabetes are utilizing
their DSME benefits.
18
Everyone with Diabetes Counts:
The Goals

CMS Goal 2: Make Care Safer by Reducing
Harm Caused in the Delivery of Care
 Reducing Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) in
Hospitals
 Reducing Healthcare-Associated Conditions in
Nursing Homes
23
Reducing HAI Infections in
Hospitals: The Data
 An analysis describes the average total cost of a typical
Clostridium difficile (C. diff) case at $12,834.91, or
$4,486.09 more (54 percent higher) than the adjusted
hospital cost for an inpatient who does not have C. diff.
 Patients who were admitted for recurrent C. diff had an
average length of stay of approximately 8.8 days, and
their average direct cost per recurrence was $4,096.93.
24
Reducing Healthcare-Associated Infections
in Hospitals: The Project
 Recruit hospitals with Central-Line Associated Blood Stream
Infection (CLABSI) rates above national averages
 Work in CLABSI, CAUTI and C. diff reduction in both
Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and non-ICU settings
 Ventilator Associated Events reduction education
 Use root cause analysis to determine causes of infections
and target interventions
 Educational webinars tailored to identified causes
 Education on reporting National Healthcare Safety Network
(NHSN) data
25
Reducing Healthcare-Acquired Conditions
in Nursing Homes: The Data
 An estimated 1.4 million Americans live in nursing homes on any
given day and approximately one in five, or 22 percent, suffer
harm during their stay.
 Nearly 60 percent of these incidents are deemed preventable,
leading to a national call for improved safety and quality of care
for nursing home residents.
 MORE THAN ½ of residents who experienced harm returned to the
hospital for treatment. $2.8 BILLION in hospital costs attributed to
harm caused in nursing homes in one year.
 Oklahoma is 39th (worst in nation) in using antipsychotics
inappropriately in nursing homes
26
Reducing Healthcare-Acquired
Conditions in Nursing Homes
 Recruit 75 percent of all nursing homes including 75
percent of one star facilities – 58 nursing facilities in
Oklahoma
 National Collaborative, two rounds of recruitment
 Individualized technical assistance to all recruited nursing
homes
 Coaching on initiating a Quality Assurance and Performance
Improvement (QAPI) culture
 Local Area Network for Excellence (LANE) convener
 Engage beneficiaries
27
Nursing Home Project Goals
 Reduction in percentage of residents who receive
antipsychotic medications
 Percentage of long-stay residents with improved
mobility
 Percentage of facilities recruited, including low
performers
 Attain composite score of six or better on the Nursing
Home Quality Composite Measure (13 National Quality
Forum-endorsed long-stay quality measures)
28
CMS Goal 3: Promote Effective
Communication and Coordination
of Care
Care Coordination: Reducing Readmissions
29
Statement of Problem:
Readmissions
 Hospitalizations consume 31 percent
of the $2 trillion in total health care
expenditures in the United States
› One in four (25 percent) of
hospitalizations are avoidable
› One in five (20 percent) of all
hospitalizations result in 30-day
readmissions

30
Care Coordination: Reducing
Readmissions
 Recruit communities where 60 percent of Medicare Fee-forService (FFS) beneficiaries reside
 Provide one-on-one and virtual technical assistance to
hospitals, downstream providers and communities
 Educate on best practices, root cause analysis, implementing
interventions, monitoring progress and understanding the
data
 Recruit and form community coalitions
 Coordinate and conduct community workgroup meetings
31
Statement of Problem:
Medication Safety
 National estimates suggest that adverse drug events
(ADEs) contribute an additional $3.5 billion dollars to U.S.
1
health care costs.
 Given the U.S. population’s large and ever-increasing
magnitude of medication exposure, the potential for harm
from ADEs is a critical patient safety and public health
challenge.
 ADEs are a direct result of drugs used during medical care
that produce harmful events. These harmful events can
include, but are not limited to, medication errors, adverse
2,3
drug reactions, allergic reactions and overdoses.
