As a Quality Innovation Network-Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO), contracted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Qsource led a five-year, five-state collaborative known as atom Alliance. This work was conducted from 2014 through July 2019 in partnership with many healthcare organizations, providers, patients and stakeholders. Today, we’re celebrating the success of this effort and its impact on improved healthcare quality.

While the work under our atom Alliance initiative is complete, Qsource’s relentless, ongoing effort to improve health and healthcare continues.

Nursing Homes

Qsource encourages nursing homes to join us in this initiative to enhance the quality of care delivered. Through technical assistance, innovative tools and team training, Qsource helps nursing homes maximize star ratings, improve state survey results and avoid costly penalties.

Behavioral Health

Through data analysis, patient education and staff training, we can help you track opioid prescribing patterns and identify potential opioid-related adverse drug events.

Patient Safety

Qsource encourages nursing homes and community coalitions to join us in this initiative to increase safety for all patients. Through technical assistance, program development, and data analysis, we can enhance your ability to prevent medical errors.

Chronic Disease Self-Management

Qsource encourages community coalitions to join us in this initiative to prevent the advancement of chronic diseases and improve outcomes for patients with chronic conditions. Through best practices, patient education and workflow improvement, we can help you identify chronic diseases earlier and improve your patients’ outcomes. 

Care Transitions

Qsource encourages community coalitions to join us in this initiative to improve the care patients receive when they move from one care setting to another. Through best practices, patient education and data analysis, we can help you avoid reimbursement penalties and eliminate gaps in healthcare services. 

Community Coalitions

It takes a village to make a difference. Ideas can spread and impact the lives of thousands. As a community coalition member, you join peers from across the spectrum of care to address the most pressing local healthcare issues. Together, we’re building a network of advocates dedicated to strengthening the voice of patients, providers and communities wherever decisions shaping the future of the health system are being made.
