Certified Harmony Healthcare International QAPI
Quality Assurance & Performance Improvement (QAPI) is a data-driven, proactive approach to improving the quality of life, care, and services in organizational settings. CMS requires that healthcare entities implement and effectively demonstrate a program that encompasses the principals and methods associated with ongoing monitoring of outcomes.
A QAPI Program provides the facility level team members a forum and platform to identify areas of growth, risk and refinement that potentially impact the quality of care rendered to the patient population or negatively impinge on the financial well-being of the organization.
The Harmony Healthcare International (HHI) QAPI Certification Program provides the tools and framework for members at all levels of the organization to:
- identify opportunities for improvement;
- address gaps in systems or processes;
- develop and implement an improvement or corrective plan and;
- continuously monitor effectiveness of interventions.
Effective QAPI programs are critical to improving the quality of life, quality of care and quality of services that are delivered in nursing homes.
