Nursing Home

The New England QIN-QIO works with long-term care providers to improve nursing home performance through enhanced consumer engagement, strengthened survey processes and standards, and the advancement of quality through innovation. We are dedicated to assisting nursing homes staff to improve the care they offer their residents by:

  • understanding Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI)
  • reducing unnecessary antipsychotic drug use in dementia patients
  • increasing resident mobility
  • improving national nursing home ratings
  • reducing hospital readmissions
  • improving care transitions
  • improving adult immunization rates
  • combatting antibiotic resistant bacteria through Antibiotic Stewardship
  • preventing adverse drug events through medication safety
