QUALITYWISE NEWSLETTER

Each month, we will keep you informed about everything QualityWISE related, including our new Quality Assurance systems, updates on best practices related to quality and compliance, and information related to the Corporate Integrity Agreement (CIA) into which RehabCare recently entered with the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services (OIG). Our goal is to provide you information related to these important topics, and in a way that’s easy for you to access and apply to your daily work.

If you have any questions or concerns related to quality, compliance or the CIA, you can email RehabCareQualityWISE@rehabcare.com, or contact Kindred’s Compliance Department at Compliance@kindred.com. You also may contact the Compliance Hotline at 1.844.760.5835 to report suspected violations of any federal health care program requirements or Kindred’s policy and procedures.
