The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has got its eagle eye on your hospital’s patient safety and risk management. That’s why you must maintain—and potentially improve—your compliance with the Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement (QAPI) standards. Recently, CMS identified over 1,700 deficiencies related to patient safety. Is your hospital guilty of any of these?
Get a needed quality check-up by joining hospital compliance consultant Sue Dill Calloway as she walks you through CMS hospital QAPI standards, required policies and procedures for every hospital, and the three root cause analyses you are required to conduct. She will review the section in the QAPI standards that addresses patient safety and risk management, and you’ll go over the QAPI worksheet used by state and federal surveyors to assess QAPI standards compliance. With this worksheet as a communication tool, you’ll know exactly what CMS expects from you – and how to prepare.
After attending this webinar, you’ll have a solid grasp on everything you must report to remain compliant. You’ll understand what CMS requires of you in terms of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s common formats. And, most importantly, you’ll have a solid grasp of what data you must report.
CMS recently found that 86% of adverse events are never reported to the hospital’s performance improvement program. Don’t let this be said of your hospital – get the tools you need to tighten your compliance program!
Here is a taste of what you will uncover:
