QIS


About Quality Improvement Strategy (QIS)

A QIS is described in section 1311(g)(1), as a payment structure that provides increased reimbursement or other incentives to improve health outcomes, reduce hospital readmissions, improve patient safety and reduce medical errors, implement wellness and health promotion activities, and/or reduce health and health care disparities. The QIS standards align with the National Quality Strategy, the CMS Quality Strategy, and other federal, State and private sector quality improvement initiatives, where possible, to help reinforce national health care quality priorities.
