Leveraging Change Through Engagement: Building on the Advancing Excellence Campaign to Improve Nursing Homes for Their Residents and Staff

Since 2007, The Commonwealth Fund has partnered with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to support the national quality improvement campaign Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes, in which more than 9,000 nursing homes―nearly 60 percent of the nation’s total―now participate. In the past year, the campaign has revised its goals, measures, and resources to reflect new national health policy priorities. A major undertaking in the coming year will be an attempt to create a national database of resident care outcomes―with data submitted by participating facilities―that will allow nursing homes to compare their performance against benchmarks and enable payers to select and reward high-performing homes. CMS is expected to provide cofunding through at least July 2014.
