Nursing Home Quality Initiative
This Nursing Home Quality Initiative (NHQI) website provides information and resources about the Minimum Data Set (MDS), Care Compare, payment, quality measures, and survey and certification information for providers. This website provides information about quality measures that are shown on the Care Compare website, which allows consumers, providers, states, and researchers to compare information on nursing homes. Many nursing homes have already made significant improvements in the care being provided to residents by taking advantage of these materials and the support of Quality Improvement Organization staff.
