About the Quality Initiative

Launched in 2012 by AHCA/NCAL, the Quality Initiative serves as a national e­ffort to build upon the existing work of the long term and post-acute care profession. The Initiative aims to further improve quality of care in skilled nursing centers and assisted living communities by challenging member facilities to meet measurable goals in areas such as hospital readmissions, off-label use of antipsychotics, and customer satisfaction.

Learn more about the goals for nursing facilities and assisted living facilities under the AHCA/NCAL Quality Initiative Recognition Program. Program achievers will be honored at AHCA/NCAL’s upcoming Quality Summit in Grapevine, TX, on March 10, 2020.
