Projects

It's flu season!

It's especially important for healthcare workers to protect themselves—as well as their families and vulnerable patients—from the flu. Get strategies to improve staff vaccination rates.

Our Medicare contracts direct us to manage projects that make a difference in the quality of healthcare provided in Idaho and Washington. We strive to incorporate the patient and family voice in all our work.
