Center for Clinical Standards & Quality (CCSQ)

  • Description:
Quality health care for people with Medicare is a high priority for the President, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). HHS and CMS began launching Quality Initiatives in 2001 to assure quality health care for all Americans through accountability and public disclosure. The various Quality Initiatives touch every aspect of the healthcare system.
