If CMS showed up at your door tomorrow would you be able to show that you are in compliance with the Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement (QAPI) standards? Did you know there is a section in the QAPI standards that address patient safety and risk management? It requires hospitals to have three root cause analyses. Hospitals can be even cited for not having the right number of required policies and procedures.
Get ready for an audit with this live webinar from industry veteran Sue Dill. Join Dill as she explains the QAPI, who uses it, and whether your facility must be in compliance. The CMS QAPI worksheet is an excellent communication tool for the hospital to know what the CMS’ expectations are. QAPI is an important issue to CMS and an increased area of focus.
After attending this live audio event, you will know about CMS’ worksheet on QAPI, who it pertains to, who is responsible for the program, and what happens if your facility receives a high number of deficiencies in QAPI. You will also know about the new QAPI requirements for CAHS. It is estimated that 86% of adverse events are never reported to the hospital’s PI program. Performance improvement is critical to CMS and the hospital conditions of participation require many things to be measured. Make sure yours are done right!
