          “Since our establishment in West Virginia in 1973, we have sought innovative ways to improve health and health care for everyone,” Quality Insights’ Chief Executive Officer Dr. Sven Berg said. “I am optimistic that this special grant opportunity inspire innovation, boost promising projects, and foster collaboration that advances our mission to the benefit of all.”


          Quality Insights expects to fund eight to 15 grants in amounts up to $20,000 in areas where its staff of clinicians, data experts and community health workers collaborate with community coalitions, health care facilities and patients to improve care across a wide range of settings, including physician offices, nursing homes and renal dialysis facilities.


          “We want to give back to the communities we serve through catalyzing community-driven and data-driven improvement in the quality of health and health care,” Dr. Jean Storm, medical director of Quality Insights, said.


          In addition to West Virginia, the grants are available for nonprofit organizations based in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
