To improve the effectiveness and efficiency of care and the quality of life of people receiving long-term services and supports by fostering person- and family-centered quality measurement and advancing innovative best practices.
How can the LTQA make a difference?
The LTQA can work to make advancements in the quality of life of people receiving long-term services and supports by:
Facilitating dialogue and partnerships among all provider organizations that serve people needing long-term services and supports to help break down the provider silos in which quality initiatives have occurred.
Bringing consumers and family caregivers together with LTC providers and government agencies to agree on goals and associated measures of greatest concern.
Making stronger links between quality measurement goals and evidence-based practices to achieve them.
Collaborating with other quality improvement organizations on common priorities and goals.
