Join IPRO’s Nursing Home Collaborative for free community pandemic response support
COVID-19’s impact on healthcare and the organizations that care for our most vulnerable patients will last long beyond the end of the pandemic. HANYS is working with its partners at IPRO to sign up member healthcare organizations for the Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative to address these issues for the future. In addition to the original goals of supporting community health improvement, the program will now include technical assistance on rapid response, emergency management and infection control.
Over the next five years, IPRO’s quality improvement teams will provide participating nursing homes, hospitals, home care organizations and their community partners with resources and support, free of charge. Efforts will focus on building system-level capacity for rapid response, performing organization and community self-assessments for managing emergencies, adoption and implementation of infection control strategies and dissemination and assistance with implementation of evidence-based and emerging best practices.
IPRO will connect providers across the care continuum with community-based organizations, identify community-specific needs, share best practices and help participating organizations implement interventions to enhance the overall health of the communities they serve.
All participating organizations will have access to educational resources and tools, health information technology support, data analysis and reporting, peer-to-peer collaboration, person and family engagement insight and online learning.
