SEATTLE, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Livanta LLC, a government contracting firm, has licensed clinical guidelines from MCG (formerly Milliman Care Guidelines) to support new Medicare quality improvement projects valued at more than $120 million. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) awarded Livanta the contracts under the restructured CMS Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) Program.
Under the restructured Beneficiary and Family-Centered Care (BFCC) QIO Program, Livanta will support case review and monitoring activities separate from traditional quality improvement activities by licensing MCG care guidelines that cover ambulatory, acute, recovery facility, home, and behavioral health settings.
"The new QIO program is an important part of CMS efforts to achieve the Triple Aim," said Jon Shreve, president of MCG. "With a successful record of supporting healthcare quality improvement across the country, Livanta is well-positioned to help make the restructured QIO program a success. We're pleased to have them as partners."
Livanta was awarded CMS contracts that cover two regions: the Northeast region, known as Area 1, includes Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, Vermont, and the Virgin Islands. The West Coast region, known as Area 5, includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii (including the Pacific Territories of American Samoa, Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands), Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington State.
