Effective quality improvement requires clear, accurate data. Battelle works with agencies such as the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) and the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA), along with hospitals and healthcare providers, to provide objective and meaningful information to drive improvements in healthcare quality.
We help health systems, small or large, identify their highest priority quality improvement opportunities and provide supportive resources to support the implementation of new practices. Our approach to QI improvement includes the use of data analytics coupled with standard/proven QI methods. At Battelle, we have a longstanding history of performing complex analytics projects for CMS, CDC, and other health care organizations as well as clinical expertise that can help you increase performance.
