In case you missed this update over what was surely a busy end-of-year, CMS released updated information on the QAPI initiative. Please find the links to this material for your reference:
- December 14, 2012 Letter: Preview of Nursing Home Quality Assurance & Performance Improvement (QAPI) Guide – QAPI at a Glance
- The QAPI at a Glance document provided by CMS has been put together to help nursing homes understand the principles of QAPI so they can begin to incorporate them into their systems now.
- 5 Elements of QAPI: CMS Compliance Group outlined the Five Elements of QAPI in our post, “Taking a Look at Systematic Quality Improvement Using the Five QAPI Elements.”
Is your facility getting ready for QAPI? If you have questions or require assistance, please contact Linda Elizaitis: firstname.lastname@example.org /631.692.4422.
