There has been a lot of talk about QAPI. What is the director of nursing's role? Where should we start?
The Advancing Excellence campaign has released updated goals and called on nursing homes to actively use the framework for achieving better quality care.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services still cannot say when an official regulation will be established for the Quality Assessment and Performance Initiative, but that's not stopping the agency from moving forward with QAPI initiatives. Providers should feel confident they will be well prepared for QAPI by following the recommendations in recently posted online materials, said CMS project officer Deborah Lyons, RN.
Nursing home operators can now access a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services webpage dedicated to the Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement initiative.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services may be asking you for help this summer. It might behoove you to sit up and take notice.
