The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) is finalizing the results of the 2020 Nursing Home Quality Initiative (NHQI) for public reporting and would like you to review the data submitted by your organization. This is not an opportunity to update your data, but to review your results and to reach out if you have any questions. This letter is accompanied by the methodology for the 2020 NHQI and instructions for interpreting your facility’s 2020 NHQI results. The NYSDOH requests that nursing homes provide feedback by August 13, 2021.
If there are any questions about the 2020 NHQI, please email email@example.com. After the feedback period, the finalized results will be released to the nursing homes. The Department will also post finalized data on its Health Data NY website, and will inform you when the file is publicly available.
