After receiving several requests for assistance from our clients to help them implement a Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement Program for their nursing home, CMS Compliance Group has developed a formal service offering to assist facilities with their QAPI implementations. Please find an outline of CMS Compliance Group’s QAPI development and implementation service below.
Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement Program (QAPI) development/implementation
CMS Compliance Group proactively helps your facility develop a means of improving its quality of care by creating a QAPI plan that encompasses ongoing quality assurance and performance improvement efforts. One of the premises behind a successful QAPI implementation is a focus on systems and processes, two areas where CMSCG works with clients on a regular basis to help them improve performance. To develop the QAPI plan for your skilled nursing facility, we will work with representatives from each department to formalize a written plan that integrates process improvement tools, identifies gaps in systems and processes, and allows the facility to develop and implement an improvement or corrective plan that can be consistently monitored for results. We also work with your team to establish the guidelines for conducting Performance Improvement Projects, an integral part of QAPI that focuses on a particular problem area for the facility that needs attention for improvement.
The best approach to take to implementing QAPI is a proactive one. Don’t wait until CMS provides a final date for compliance to start this in-depth process.
