NQIIC Annual Reports

This Annual Report intends to demonstrate to Medicare beneficiaries, caregivers, health care providers, quality improvement leaders, government officials, and others how the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Network of Quality Improvement and Innovation Contractors (NQIIC) Program has supported quality improvement efforts across care settings, using data to drive change and add value to taxpayers. It highlights the work completed during the inaugural year (November 2019 – November 2020) of the NQIIC Program.

As health care is continually shifting priorities and evolving, much of the work outlined in this document has progressed beyond the dates defined within this 2020 Annual Report. The closing section briefly describes future directions, and a full report on activities initiated or continuing after November 2020 will be contained in the subsequent Annual Report.
