Providers interested in the future development of Quality Improvement Organizations will want to clear their schedule for 12:30 Eastern Time on Thursday. That's when The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will host an extra edition of its popular Open Door Forum conference call series. The 90-minute session will delve into future possibilities of QIOs, which bring together providers, clinicians, residents and patients to pursue wide-scale improvements and spread best practices in resident and patient care.

CMS officials will make a brief presentation and then give conference call participants an opportunity to verbally answer questions about quality pursuits and goals, and make comments. Discussion materials for the session also will be downloadable here by Tuesday, officials said. More information on QIOs also can be found at the site in the meantime

To take part in the special Open Door Forum, call (800) 837-1935 shortly before the session starts. Use conference ID #90637068 for reference.
