Patient Engagement – Topic of the Month

Heartland Kidney Network is committed to assisting facilities in meeting the CMS and Network goal of improving patient engagement at the facility level. In 2018, the Network is incorporating patient engagement into all of our Quality Improvement Activities and we will be continuing the “Share How You Care” initiative. We will continue to gather and share the wonderful ways facilities are engaging their patients through the Patient Engagement Showcase.  We ask that every facility share at least one activity throughout the year.
