QUALITY INITIATIVES

The AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative Program

AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative

The AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative is a national, multi-year effort to further improve quality of care in America’s long term and post-acute care centers. Since the launch of the Initiative in 2012, members have been challenged to meet measurable targets in key areas such as hospitalizations and antipsychotics usage.

The next phase of the effort continues to challenge providers to achieve quantitative results in four areas by March 2021. These areas are top priorities for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) as well as Managed Care Organizations (MCOs), and are aligned with federal mandates that link financial outcomes to quality performance.IHCA/INCAL provides members support and resources to help member facilities achieve their quality initiative goals.
