Hospital Quality Improvement Initiative

Welcome

TMF Health Quality Institute helps hospitals participating in the Hospital Quality Improvement Initiative (HQIC) reduce all-cause patient harm and readmissions in rural, medically underserved and vulnerable populations. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has contracted with TMF to work with qualifying hospitals. Together, we will identify solutions to improve health care outcomes and improve patient care in your facility.

As a member of the HQIC network, you have access to the latest news, resources, learning opportunities and forum discussions. Your hospital and health care providers work hard every day to provide safe reliable quality care. TMF looks forward to partnering with you to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, economy and quality of services delivered to your patients. Download our fact sheet (PDF) to learn more.
