With federal and local health reform efforts focused on improving quality and cutting costs, The Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts will be the state leader in a new national campaign to reduce avoidable hospitalizations and improve management of oral medications though home health care.
Performed in partnership with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), a new and improved Home Health Quality Improvement (HHQI) National Campaign will launch January 13, 2010. As a HHQI Local Area Network of Excellence (LANE), the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts is the central hub of campaign activity in the state.
In 2007 and 2008, more than 5,500 home health agencies enrolled in the first HHQI National Campaign. Together they learned, shared best practices, and improved the care provided to their patients.
