Nursing homes that have worked with Primaris know how quality improvement can lead to better health outcomes for residents and a better bottom line. In the past, Primaris projects have been limited to a small number of providers. In 2013, Primaris will launch the Nursing Home Quality Collaborative, and ALL Missouri nursing homes can participate.
The collaborative includes education, webinars and shared learning sessions about “hot topics” that concern Missouri nursing homes. “Hot topics” sessions feature national and state speakers. These speakers have done training with surveyors and will address regulatory success and how to improve resident care. Sign up now at primaris.org. Click “Join the Nursing Home Quality Collaborative” on the left-hand side of the homepage.
As Missouri’s Medicare Quality Improvement Organization, Primaris provides clinical improvement resources, expertise, and real-time, tailored assistance to meet a home’s needs and reinforce existing efforts. Participating nursing homes are not charged for any materials, consultations or coaching. If you have questions, please contact Pam Guyer at 573-356-7127, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also visit primaris.org to find out more, sign a participation agreement and register for the “Hot Topics in Nursing Homes” webinar series. Only homes signing an agreement will be able to attend Primaris’ 2013 sessions.
