Hospital Quality Improvement Initiative

TMF Health Quality Institute helps hospitals participating in the Hospital Quality Improvement Initiative 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. Download our fact sheet (PDF) to learn more.

To participate in this important quality improvement initiative, please complete and email a Letter of Participation (PDF) to hqic@tmf.org by March 15, 2021. Once our team receives your letter, a TMF quality improvement specialist will contact eligible hospitals to answer questions, provide additional information and assist in registration. You may also contact TMF directly by calling 512-334-1642 or emailing hqic@tmf.org. A member of our team will respond by the next business day.

Your hospital and health care providers work hard every day to provide safe reliable quality care. TMF invites your hospital to partner with us to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, economy and quality of services delivered to your patients.
