Leading innovation to improve the quality, effectiveness and safety of healthcare.

Welcome to Kansas Foundation for Medical Care

The Kansas Foundation for Medical Care (KFMC) is a not-for-profit organization focused on improving healthcare quality. KFMC is the Quality Improvement Organization (QIO), the Regional Extension Center (REC) and External Quality Review Organization (EQRO) for the state of Kansas. We also contract with many private companies to provide health information technology (HIT) consulting services, quality improvement and review services. Throughout various contracts, our role is to work with healthcare providers and organizations to develop ways to improve the use of HIT and the quality of healthcare provided to all Kansas healthcare consumers.

KFMC also educates consumers so that they can make informed decisions about healthcare. We ensure that Medicare and Medicaid patients receive appropriate and quality healthcare.
