what we do

Telligen’s quality and performance improvement solutions help government agencies and private organizations accomplish goals related to better patient care, better health for populations and communities, and lower healthcare costs.

Government Agencies: Telligen has served as the CMS-designated Quality Improvement Organization for the state of Iowa since 1972. Today, we’re a Quality Innovation Network, helping the Medicare program improve the quality, value and efficiency of services delivered to patients in Iowa, Illinois, Colorado and Oklahoma.

Private Organizations: We offer consulting and support services to hospitals, nursing homes, home health agencies, physician practices, healthcare systems and community-based organizations wanting to bring best practices and process improvements to their organization.

Our work has helped the Medicare program and its providers:

  • Decrease adverse drug events
  • Improve immunization rates
  • Fight the spread of antibiotic resistance
  • Lower rates of unnecessary hospital readmissions and medical errors
  • Reduce disparities associated with diabetes and cardiovascular disease
  • Analyze cost savings for targeted improvement programs
  • Improve nursing home quality

“We really like the benchmark, comparison reports that we receive from Telligen. They are at the local level and show our true performance; we can’t get these reports elsewhere. Also, the resources and assistance the QIO provides on various topics is [sic] very helpful and saves us significant time researching different topics.”
