Providigm to Announce Second Quarter 2013 QAPI Accredited Nursing Centers

Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 12, 2013

Providigm, which conducts the nation’s only nursing home accreditation program based on Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI), will announce centers accredited in the second quarter of 2013. This second group of facilities receiving 2013 accreditation have conducted certain levels of QAPI activity between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013. The first set of 644 accredited facilities was announced last month based on QAPI activities conducted between April 1, 2012 and March 30, 2013. These facilities all met measurable QAPI standards for comprehensiveness, continuity, coverage, and corrective actions. Meeting these standards was found to be associated with a substantial reduction in both numbers of deficiencies and Civil Money Penalties in a national research study conducted from 2010 to 2012.

Providigm’s accreditation program has a rolling eligibility period; each quarter, additional facilities are evaluated based on the prior four-quarter performance, and those meeting the criteria receive the accreditation. With one month left in this review period, provisionally accredited and non-accredited facilities are encouraged to contact Providigm for further information on how to meet the requirements for accreditation in this period, or begin the process for the next period of accreditation that will occur in Quarter 3 of 2013. According to Barbara Baylis RN, MSN and Providigm’s Accreditation Program Director, “QAPI accreditation provides an opportunity for nursing centers to demonstrate to residents and families, physicians, and hospital partners that they are continuously improving quality because QAPI is a process that is respected throughout health care.”
