NYSHFA Sends Quality Recommendations to the Commissioners of Health

Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

NYSHFA staff met with the NYS DOH Commissioner of Health twice last fall to discuss SNF Quality of Care issues. In mid-December, he requested a list of recommendations from the SNF profession. NYSHFA partnered with LANY, CCLC and HANYS to meet this request. The top Recommendations are:

  • Building a more effective, skilled and flexible long-term care workforce
  • Advance Health Information Technology and Interoperability in Long-Term Care settings
  • Sustain and expand Financial support for Long-Term Care
  • Programming and Funding
  • Ensure Survey Professionalism, Quality and Consistency

See attached document for full information under each topic. The next meeting to discuss this document is scheduled for late January.
