Advancing Excellence in America's Nursing Homes: Accelerating Results Through Coalitions, Year 5


Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes, supported by The Commonwealth Fund and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), continues to demonstrate its effectiveness in stimulating improvements in resident care. Three years of data indicate that, in the aggregate, nursing homes participating in the national quality campaign are more able to reduce use of physical restraints, prevent pressure ulcers, and improve pain management than are facilities not participating. In the coming year, Advancing Excellence will work with CMS and Medicare Quality Improvement Organizations to address revised priorities, including improved care transitions, and to help implement the new federal Nursing Home Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement Initiative. Staff will also issue a new round of state performance improvement challenge awards, continue to assist the campaign’s state learning networks, revise education materials, and test the use of social media to reach a wider group of stakeholders.
