Government-Industry Roundtable on Quality in Long-Term Care

"Driving for Quality in Long-Term Care: A Board of Directors Dashboard" Government-Industry Roundtable: A Report on the Office of Inspector General and Health Care Compliance Association Roundtable on Long-Term Care Board of Directors' Oversight of Quality of Care

On Dec. 6, 2007, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) co-sponsored a government-industry roundtable called Driving for Quality in Long-Term Care: A Board of Directors Dashboard.

More than 35 long-term care professionals and 10 government representatives gathered to discuss issues surrounding boards of directors' oversight of quality of care. One of the goals of the roundtable was to specify items that could be included on a "Quality of Care Dashboard" to be offered as a tool for boards of directors of long-term care organizations.

The participants represented a wide spectrum of long-term care organizations and professionals, including not-for-profit and for-profit organizations, multi-facility and single facility organizations, nationally and locally based organizations, clinicians, administrators, compliance officers, outside and corporate counsel, and monitors involved in OIG quality of care Corporate Integrity Agreements.
