Alliant Quality houses the following three end-stage renal disease (ESRD) Networks: Southeastern Kidney Council, Inc. (Network 6), Network 8, Inc., and ESRD Network of Texas (Network 14). Each of these ESRD Networks are QIO-like entities.
Section 1902 (a)(30)(A) of the Social Security Act (the Act) requires that State Medicaid Agencies provide methods and procedures to safeguard against unnecessary utilization of care and services and to assure "efficiency, economy and quality of care." Under section 1902 (d), a State can contract with a QIO or QIO-like entity to perform medical and utilization review functions required by law. The contracts must be consistent with the QIO legislation. Section 1903 (a)(3)(C) of the Act specifies that 75% Federal Financial Participation is available for State expenditures for the performance of medical and utilization reviews or external quality reviews by a QIO, or by entity, which meets the requirements of section 1152 of the Act (i.e., "QIO-like entity").
Additionally in 2008, we earned the ISO-9001:2008 designation, an international standard for Quality Management. It ensures that our quality management system consistently provides products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements, aims to enhance customer satisfaction, and includes processes for continual improvement.
