Advancing Excellence in America's Nursing Homes: Using Coalitions to Accelerate Progress, Phase 2


Advancing Excellence in America's Nursing Homes, a coordinated nationwide effort to improve nursing home quality, is beginning to show results. Led at the national level by a broad-based coalition of stakeholder organizations, the effort is supported by 49 local area networks that recruit providers, consumers, and frontline workers and lend technical assistance to nursing homes. Last year, a Fund grant supported a national field network coordinator, development of Web-based educational materials and webinars, and small stipends to ensure consumer participation at events. Based on the success of Advancing Excellence in year 1, a second year of funding is requested to build the network's capacity to lead quality improvement efforts, reach out to facilities that have not yet joined, and maintain progress toward meeting improvement targets. It is anticipated that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will continue to cofund the effort.
