Led by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) Program is one of the largest fed eral programs dedicated to improving health quality at the community level for people with Medicare. We support a person-oriented model of care and help reduce provider burden, so they can spend more time focusing on patients.

To do this, the QIO Program has two types of QIOs: Quality Innovation Network-QIOs (QIN-QIOs) and Beneficiary and Family Centered Care-QIOs (BFCC-QIOs):

The 12 regional QIN-QIOs work with health care providers, community partners, beneficiaries, and caregivers on data-driven initiatives designed to improve the quality of care for people with specific health conditions.

  • Alliant Quality
  • Comagine Health
  • Great Plains QIN
  • Health Quality Innovators
  • Health Services Advisory Group
  • IPRO
  • Mountain-Pacific Quality Health
  • Qsource
  • Quality Insights
  • Superior Health Quality Alliance
  • Telligen
  • TMF Health Quality Institute

The two BFCC-QIOs help Medicare beneficiaries exercise their right to high-quality health care by using the Immediate Advocacy process to address concerns and appeals, quality of care reviews and providing Health Care Navigation services.
