History - Community Relationship

VIMI is recognized locally as a valuable and expert resource for information in the health care field. VIMI has earned a reputation as a trustworthy and professional organization among practitioners, beneficiaries, local government officials, community organizations, and providers. These relationships and partnerships were formed, sustained, and expanded over the past 35 years, and has helped us to achieve our goals of effecting positive change in the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of health care for Medicare beneficiaries, and by extension, for all residents of the Virgin Islands.

VIMI continues to facilitate patient-centric partnerships with grass-root organizations to improve health care. We encourage a patient-centered, patient-empowered, consumer-provider partnership philosophy to motivate all USVI residents receiving health services to take an active role in their health care. We identify areas of deficiency and implement targeted quality improvement initiatives. We are committed to our mission of the right care, every time, in the right setting, because by improving care for Medicare beneficiaries, all patients can benefit regardless of age, ability to pay or setting of care.
