AHCA/NCAL Announces Quality Cabinet

As part of its nation-wide quality agenda, AHCA/NCAL recently launched its Quality Cabinet, which will take the lead on oversight and execution of the goals included in the Association’s new Quality Initiative.

The Cabinet hit the ground running this week with the unveiling of the Initiative’s four strategic quality improvement goals for the long term and post-acute care community during the AHCA/NCAL Quality Symposium in Houston, Texas. In addition these goals, the Cabinet will also tackle a fifth goal to develop new therapy outcome measures, a national effort in partnership with other leading long term care organizations.

The Cabinet is headed up by long time quality champion Mary Ousley, who received the Association’s “Friend of Quality” award last October at the AHCA/NCAL Convention in Las Vegas. Recognizing Ousley’s outstanding work in quality improvement, AHCA/NCAL renamed that award to the Mary K. Ousley Champion of Quality Award.
