Improving the quality, safety and value of the care you receive through the Medicare program is what the QIN-QIO Program is all about. Through the QIN-QIO program, Alliant Quality can assist you in becoming more confident about making health care decisions and taking an active role in managing your health.
Many experts have sought to define health quality. The simplest definition comes from considering what it means for you as a patient:
- You can access and receive the right care for your condition, in the right place, the first time.
- Your health care providers communicate with you in ways you understand, and involve you in making decisions about your care.
- Your care does not result in avoidable complications like infections, falls or unnecessary hospital readmissions.
