In November 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) awarded a five-year contract to Alliant Health Solutions (AHS) to serve as a Quality Innovation Network – Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) under the recently launched 12th Statement of Work.
QIN-QIOs serving under the 12th Statement of Work will provide targeted assistance to nursing homes and communities in small and rural practices, those serving the most vulnerable populations, and those in need of customized quality improvement. Through this body of work, CMS is focusing on results, protecting taxpayer dollars, and most importantly, ensuring the safety and quality of care delivered to every beneficiary.
The QIN-QIO contract tasks AHS to provide services to seven states including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina and Tennessee.
“We are honored and humbled to be entrusted with such a large statement of work,” said Dennis White, President & CEO of Alliant Health Solutions. “Alliant has been engaged with CMS initiatives for many years to provide quality improvement technical assistance. This opportunity enables AHS to deepen our existing footprint across the South by supporting beneficiaries and providers in other states and we are grateful that we can continue our mission to make health care better.”
