The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is accepting proposals through June 26 to participate in a Network of Quality Improvement and Innovation Contractors to support health care quality improvement efforts across settings and programs. The program will encompass work currently performed under a variety of quality improvement contracts, including the Hospital Improvement Innovation Networks and Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organizations, subject to available funds. According to CMS, the initiative aims to achieve large-scale improvement results using strategies that are data driven, transparent and empower patients, families and clinicians to make decisions about their health care. Applicants must submit a notice of intent to submit a proposal by May 25. CMS anticipates awarding multiple contracts by Dec. 1.
