Qualis Health HHQI works with Home Health Agencies on several topics:

Cardiac Care
In conjunction with the Million Hearts® initiative and the Home Health Quality Improvement (HHQI) campaign, Qualis Health’s Cardiac Care initiative focuses on improving key cardiac health outcomes in Home Health Agencies across Idaho and Washington State. Please visit HHQI to learn more about the Cardiovascular Health Improvement Initiative, the Roadmap to Cardiovascular Improvement and to access to Best Practice Intervention Packages (BPIPs).

Learn more about the Home Health Cardiac Care Initiative and how you can better assess, educate and advocate for improving cardiovascular health in your clients.

Immunizations
Qualis Health works with Home Health Agencies across Idaho and Washington to improve overall immunization rates, better assess and document immunization status, reduce disparities and increase reporting to the state registry.

Learn more about the Home Health Immunization Initiative and how you can increase immunization rates for your clients.

In addition to the HHQI, Qualis Health is assisting communities throughout Idaho and Washington to improve care coordination, prevent adverse drug events, and reduce unnecessary rehospitalizations. Please visit the Care Transitions web page to learn more about this initiative.
