The Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) is a National Quality Strategy (NQS) "Priorities in Action" featured program this month. The Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP) would like to thank and congratulate all of our grantees and the 1200+ CAHs that have helped make MBQIP a success! As MBQIP is still in progress, we would also like to encourage continued enthusiasm as we move forward and implement quality improvement initiatives in order to improve the quality of care received by our rural patients nationwide.

The National Strategy for Quality Improvement in Health Care (National Quality Strategy, or NQS) is a nationwide effort to align public and private interests to improve the quality of health and health care for all Americans.
NQS developed Priorities in Action to feature some of our nation’s most promising and transformative quality improvement programs, and describes their alignment to the NQS’ three aims and six priorities. Updated monthly, these programs represent private sector, Federal, State, and local efforts.
