Lakewood Health to participate in learning collaborative

Lakewood Health System in Staples joined the Stratis Health Acting Together to Achieve Excellence campaign (ATTAX).

Lakewood will participate in this campaign designed to ensure that every nursing home resident receives the highest quality of care. The ATTAX campaign will instill quality and performance improvement practices aimed at attacking and eliminating health care acquired conditions and improving resident satisfaction in Minnesota nursing homes.

Supporting the development of strategies for overall quality will be at the heart of this work, which is supported by the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and is being led by Stratis Health, Minnesota’s Medicare Quality Improvement Organization.
