From August 2004 to October 2005, Healthcentric Advisors – previously known as Quality Partners of Rhode Island – ran the Improving Nursing Home Culture (INHC) pilot study. Sponsored by The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), this study was created to test a model and methodology for achieving transformational change within nursing homes. Our primary objective was to provide strategies that helped nursing homes create an individualized culture of care. This process would create a higher quality of life, increase satisfaction of resident care and increase retention within the workforce.
