Experience Tells Us

Working together, we can achieve better patient care, improved population health and reduced healthcare costs through quality improvement. In so doing, we achieve a shared goal – ensuring that every patient receives the right care every time.

Our Roots

Previously, we’ve served in partnership with the federal government, as an important and free resource to New Jersey’s healthcare community. Although our name has changed over the years (you may remember us as The Peer Review Organization of New Jersey, Inc., or as PRONJ), commitment to our mission – accelerating healthcare quality improvement– has remained constant.


As the federally-designated Quality Improvement Organization for New Jersey we were in a unique position – our sole focus was to help New Jersey’s healthcare community accelerate quality improvement. And with our services underwritten by the federal government there was never any cost to a provider or physician for working with us on any of our quality improvement projects. It was our privilege to serve you and the federal government in this capacity.

New Regional Approach to Medicare Quality Improvement

Healthcare Quality Strategies, Inc. (HQSI) will continue working with providers and New Jersey communities to improve health care quality as part of Quality Insights Quality Innovation Network, a new Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) chartered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).


The new regional network is comprised of five states (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, West Virginia and Louisiana) and became effective on August 1, 2014.
