PRESS RELEASE: OAI Helps Meet HHQI Milestones

Redmond, WA (March 13, 2018) – OASIS Answers Inc. (OAI) recently helped the Home Health Quality Improvement (HHQI) National Campaign welcome its 20,000th participant and 6,000th home health agency to the initiative. The HHQI National Campaign is a quality improvement program of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that offers free evidence-based educational resources, individualized data reports, networking opportunities and assistance for home health providers to improve the quality of care provided to their patients.

Linda Krulish, OAI Founder and President, serves on HHQI’s elite stakeholder work committee, an invitation-only group of highly engaged home health and cross-setting stakeholders who provide input on HHQI campaign strategies and educational materials, identify sharing opportunities and assist in participant recruitment efforts. The group meets bi-monthly to maximize its impact on home health quality.

Linda provided the following comments: “OAI congratulates the HHQI National Campaign on this monumental achievement! The HHQI National Campaign offers outstanding resources and support to home health agencies and raises the bar for home health care nationally.  OAI is proud to support the campaign and to be a part of this important CMS quality initiative.”  

While OAI is celebrating this landmark, we want to see these numbers continue to grow. So, we are encouraging everyone to share with their colleagues that they can also access HHQI’s free, evidence-based education, data, networking and assistance by registering online at www.HomeHealthQuality.org.

OAI provides consulting, training, subject matter expertise, and support for federal government post-acute care contracts, private industries, and healthcare organizations. OAI leads the home health care industry in providing consulting and training relating to care practice, quality and patient assessment including compliant OASIS data collection. OAI manages the Certificate for OASIS Specialist-Clinical (COS-C) exam: the premier, nationally standardized, psychometrically validated test that evaluates an individual's knowledge of CMS' OASIS guidelines.
