Homewatch CareGivers’ Nomination to National Quality Forum Workgroup

Demonstrates Rising Importance of Home and Community Based Care

DENVER - August 04, 2015 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Homewatch CareGivers International (www.homewatchcaregivers.com), the premier provider of home care services for the elderly and people of all ages, is proud to become a voting member of the National Quality Forum (www.qualityforum.org). The National Quality Forum (NQF) is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to improving healthcare quality. The NQF acts, under legislative authority, as an advisory committee for federal government and private sector entities.

Homewatch Caregivers’ membership in the NQF allows the organization to identify opportunities for the home care industry to educate and contribute to national efforts to improve health care. Homewatch Caregivers is the first home care company of its kind to become a member of the NQF, providing a voice for the industry.

Dr. Jette Hogenmiller, Executive Director of Quality & Outcomes at Homewatch CareGivers International, will serve as a voting member on the Measure Applications Partnership (MAP) Dual Eligible Beneficiaries Workgroup. MAP is described as “a multi-stakeholder partnership that guides the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on the selection of performance measures for federal health programs.” Noting that in 2010 Congress recognized the “benefit of an approach that encourages consensus building among diverse private- and public-sector stakeholders,” the NQF stated that this partnership provides a coordinated look at performance measures under consideration.

“By becoming a voting member of this workgroup, we have an opportunity to inform how quality home care services positively impact health care outcomes,” Dr. Hogenmiller said.

Other voting members in this workgroup include the AARP Public Policy Institute, the American Geriatrics Society, the AMDA –The Society for Post-Acute and Long-term Care Medicine, and many others.

“Home care is not just ‘sitter services’ but plays an important role in reducing medical costs and hospital readmissions,” said Leann Reynolds, president of Homewatch CareGivers International.
