Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services: Quality Care for Everyone

CMS
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that administers healthcare programs including Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and the Health Insurance Marketplace.

CMS oversees the Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organizations (QIN-QIO) like atom Alliance. The QIO Program is an important resource in CMS’s effort to improve quality and efficiency of care for Medicare beneficiaries. Throughout its history, the Program has been instrumental in advancing national efforts to motivate providers in improving quality and in measuring and improving outcomes of quality.

The QIO Program, one of the largest federal programs dedicated to improving health quality for Medicare beneficiaries, is an integral part of the HHS National Quality Strategy for providing better care and better health at lower cost. By law, the mission of the QIN-QIO Program is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, economy and quality of services delivered to Medicare beneficiaries.

Contracted by CMS, atom Alliance works to ignite powerful change in healthcare resulting in better health for older Americans, lower costs and better care. Learn more at our website www.atomalliance.org.
