Kansas Collaborative for Improvement of Care (KCIC) at Kansas University Medical Center – over 30 sites across rural Kansas
Under the visionary leadership of Dr. Robert Moser, former Director of Kansas’ Department of Health and the Environment, this CMS-funded $15 million undertaking supports the connection of some three dozen rural practices and critical access hospitals across Kansas with Kansas University Medical Center to achieve demonstrable improvement in outcomes for heart attack and stroke. The partnership with HMS assures that data movement can be achieved in a timely, cost-effective and sustainable manner.

HMS technology and know-how assure that provider panels achieve a level of accuracy well beyond other software. With this kind of accurate and consistent data, measuring performance becomes far easier, and care opportunities together with bonus funding can be maximized.
Barry Pointe Family Care, LLC
Barry Pointe, one of the region’s highest-functioning primary care clinics, has used HMS’ Solutions for Quality Improvement (SQI)for all of its quality improvement and data fluidity activities since 2015.
HMS is in discussion with public payers to address critical use cases such as alerts and treatment plan coordination when covered patients appear in emergency rooms, or electronic availability of client records that can supplant insurers needing manual extraction of quality information.
