Quality Improvement Organizations (QIO)
Some nursing facilities have received a letter from Alliant Health Solutions and are questioning if Alliant is replacing KEPRO. KEPRO is the CMS Beneficiary and Family Centered Care – Quality Improvement Organization (BFCC-QIO) for Kentucky. KEPRO assist Medicare patients in exercising their right to appeal discontinued Medicare benefits. KEPRO remains to be Kentucky’s BFCC-QIO.
Alliant is CMS Quality Innovation Network – Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO). The QIN-QIO is responsible for working with health care providers and the community on data-driven projects to improve patient safety, reduce harm and improve clinical care at the local level.
