“We applaud the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for seeking evidence-based solutions to reducing rehospitalization rates among nursing home residents," said LeadingAge President Larry Minnix. "We also look forward to additional initiatives that will help nursing homes with low rehospitalization rates pay for the additional resources required. 

"We are pleased to participate in the Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes and the Long-Term Quality Alliance, both of which are focusing on this issue. 

"Indeed, many nursing homes are already partnering in their communities and revamping their processes to address this serious problem.”
