Grant to help NJ hospitals improve quality of care

Hospitalist Leadership Connection, July 18, 2007

The Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey awarded a $125,000 grant to the New Jersey Hospital Quality Initiative (NJHQI) to help New Jersey hospitals improve quality of care, according to a recent U.S. Newswire article. The grant will cover the costs of program development, quality improvement activities, and program evaluation.

Hospitals that have scored poorly on the state's report card or the Hospital Quality Alliance's evaluation (a quality data initiative from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) will be the focus of the initiative. The funds will support an assessment of quality improvement needs for each participating hospital and will provide resources and training on quality improvement strategies for hospital personnel.
