Imagine a healthcare system in which patients receive the right care every time
and in which providers have the tools and resources to deliver that care. Florida
Medical Quality Assurance, Inc. (FMQAI) has been at the forefront of health care
information for Floridians since 1992. We are dedicated to improving quality care
delivery and health outcomes through data, education, and assistance. By collaborating
with physician practices, health plans, home health agencies, nursing homes, rehabilitation
facilities, and hospitals, FMQAI seeks to ensure that Medicare beneficiaries receive
the right care, in the right setting, every time.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), an agency of the Department
of Health and Human Services, is helping realize this vision through its national
network of Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs) and End Stage Renal Disease
(ESRD) Networks. In turn, QIOs and ESRD Networks assist providers in transforming
the way health care is delivered by collaborating with them to implement best practices
of care for All. This collaboration is grounded in the three broad aims of the National
Quality Strategy: Better Care, Healthier People and Communities, and Affordable
Care for All.
