The Pioneer Network: Advancing Culture Change in Nursing Homes, Year 5


Building on its prior work on behalf of nursing homes in the vanguard of culture change, the Pioneer Network is now reaching out to a broad audience of policymakers, regulators, and professionals as it tries to galvanize the majority of homes still sitting on the sidelines. Building on last year’s Fund–supported work, the project team will undertake a number of activities, including: four case studies of nursing homes that have undergone culture change; an examination of a Colorado pay-for-performance demonstration that uses culture change markers to trigger higher payment rates; the development of food safety and dining requirements that meet residents’ needs; and an analysis of the national impact culture change has had on quality and cost outcomes. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and Pioneer Network will cofund.
