Superior Health Quality Alliance (Superior Health) is a regional Quality Innovation Network – Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) under the direction of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Superior Health’s Person and Family Engagement (PFE) team partners with health care players, patients, residents, family advocates and community allies on strategies that promote person-centered care. To ensure these voices are incorporated into efforts to improve care in organizations across the care continuum, Superior Health established the Person & Family Advisory Council (PFAC).
As a foundational framework, PFE threads through all Superior Health focus areas. Guided by the Superior Health PFAC, the QIN-QIO works with nursing homes, hospitals, physician offices, home health agencies, and communities to implement meaningful strategies that advance person-centered care across this continuum.
Superior Health creates more equitable and person-centered systems by seeking counsel from persons and families from diverse backgrounds, ensuring that healthcare change and quality improvement reflect the needs of all populations.
