Chronic Care Improvement Program (CCIP) and Quality Improvement Program (QIP) Information: Heart Failure Education

A CMS-mandated program, the chronic care improvement program (CCIP) is designed to reduce hospitalizations for our Medicare members diagnosed with congestive heart failure. The program is closely aligned with the Million Hearts Campaign, which has a goal of significantly reducing the number of strokes and heart attacks over 5 years.

Similarly, the Quality Improvement Program (QIP) is designed to reduce all-cause re-admissions for Medicare members who have a heart failure diagnosis by focusing on medication adherence and care coordination. The QIP is aligned with the national Partnership for Patients campaign.
