Greater Rochester Nursing Home Quality Consortium

The Greater Rochester Nursing Home Quality Improvement Consortium was active from 2009-2015 and used a collaborative approach to provide  nursing home team training in Lean Six Sigma methodologies and coaching support for conducting improvement projects.

The consortium included 28 member homes, the University of Rochester Schools of Nursing and Medicine, the Greater Rochester Council, and the Ithaca College Gerontology Institute.

We learned together, shared experiences, and made important strides in improving care for older adults in nursing homes.
