The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), in collaboration with public and private partners, is transforming how they conduct business and operations, connect providers, and empower consumers and their beneficiaries. Driving quality improvement is a core function of the CMS. This commitment is evident as the CMS enhances its partnerships in a delivery system where providers are supported in achieving better outcomes in health and health care at lower cost for the beneficiaries and communities they serve.
According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) “While the results of quality measurement were originally not typically shared outside the provider organization conducting the quality improvement projects: Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) and Performance Improvement Projects (PIPs), more recent assessments using the indicators have been included in public reports intended to steer patients toward higher-quality care and drive providers to improve their scores in order to bolster their public reputation.
This webinar by expert speaker Larry D. Bowe will focus on quality measures within healthcare food service settings. Larry will also share actual QAPI projects, materials and strategies to promote positive outcomes across all healthcare food service disciplines, including nursing homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities and home health agencies.
