According to CMS, Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) is defined as an initiative that goes beyond the current Quality Assessment and Assurance (QAA) provision, and intends to expand the intensity and scope of current activities to facilitate not only correct quality deficiencies (quality assurance), but also to put practices in place to monitor all nursing home care and services to continuously improve performance (performance improvement). The QAPI framework is established through five “elements”, each element describes an important component of QAPI.
In this session, expert speaker Robert Lane will focus on first two elements of QAPI; Design/Scope, and Leadership and Governance, and specifically how the administrator’s proactive involvement in the process can position the facility for success.
QAPI is an organization-wide process, integrating the ideas and involvement of all staff, predominantly as it relates to feedback, data systems, monitoring, and the application of a systematic approach to performance improvement projects. Robert will help administrators to set the tone for improvement projects for the organization.
