More than 20% of nursing homes are using abaqis, Providigm announced.

With Phase 2 of the final rule starting next week, the abaqis management system was updated, executives said. System users have access to guided Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement assessments, in-depth investigation pathways, and automated tools, like the QAPI Plan Builder, and the Facility Assessment tool.

“As we have always done in the past, we updated our system to not only reflect the latest regulatory changes, guidance, and changes to the long-term care survey process, but also unveiled new tools that make it easier for facilities to maintain quality and provide excellent care to the elderly,” said Ellen Kuebrich, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Providigm.

Medline began offering abaqis to customers in 2008.

“It is important that we are more than just a medical supply company to our customers. Medline strives to offer comprehensive and long-term business solutions, which is why we have put tremendous focus on our partnership with Providigm to ensure post-acute care providers have the tools they need to better comply with complex regulations,” said Shawn Scott, Senior Vice President, Corporate Sales, Medline.
