Our Roots

HQSI was founded in 1982 as the Peer Review Organization of New Jersey (PRONJ). We became Healthcare Quality Strategies, Inc. (HQSI) in 2005. While our name changed, our mission – accelerating healthcare quality improvement through a collaborative and interactive process with the healthcare community– has remained the same.

Experience and Expertise

Since its founding, HQSI has designed, implemented, and evaluated hundreds of successful quality improvement projects, and reviewed more than three million medical records for a diverse client base.


For more than three decades, HQSI partnered with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as New Jersey’s Quality Improvement Organization (QIO).  We continue to partner with CMS as part of a regional Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO).


Using our evidence-based, data-driven approach, we have also partnered with governmental (state), private, for profit and not-for-profit organizations to make healthcare better, safer and less costly.


HQSI has consolidated its family of companies and integrated the staff and expertise of its subsidiary, Veritas Medical Review Services, LLC, into HQSI’s operations.  Doing so has broadened HQSI’s services to include healthcare audits.  Our combined clinical review teams, consisting of nurses and physicians, equip HQSI to provide expert industry consulting and review services.
