Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes Campaign changes to National Nursing Home Quality Improvement Campaign and changes again to Healthcare Quality Campaign

In September 2016, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and its contractors continued the work of the Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes Campaign to make nursing homes better places to live, work and visit by promoting quality and performance improvement in nursing homes through individualized, person centered care. Subsequently, the Campaign continued and was renamed the National Nursing Home Quality Improvement Campaign.

The Campaign site was operated through a contract with CMS, which will end on July 17, 2019, and unfortunately, the site will no longer be supported by CMS but a concerned group of healthcare stakeholders has stepped to help fill the void left behind by government cuts. Please know we are not funded by CMS, and Medicare but will do the best we can to provide tools and resources to continue Quality Assurance in healthcare!
