QAPI Master Class
The 2018 Home Health Conditions of Participation require
agencies to have a comprehensive quality assessment performance improvement
(QAPI) program that can positively impact outcomes in clinical care, infection
prevention and control, and effectiveness of interdisciplinary care
coordination. Improving your outcomes has never been more important!
You may have a “QA” program at your agency now: how effective is
it? does it meet the requirements of the 2018 CoPs? Is it worth the time you
spend on it, or is it mostly “busy work” that looks good on paper, but doesn’t
really improve your quality of care outcomes?
Join Teresa Northcutt, Quality Specialist, for a QAPI Master Class
and return to your agency with a QAPI program ready to put into action. You’ll
get hands on practice with your
reports (not those faux
reports) and a customized QAPI program to take back to your agency at a
fraction of the price of having a consultant come to your agency.
This one-day program will include the following:
- Outline the key components of QAPI
in the 2018 Conditions of Participation and Interpretive Guidelines
- Explain QAPI using Joint
Commission and Institute for Healthcare Improvement principles
- Bring your agency’s CASPER reports
to analyze, identify and prioritize areas of focus for your agency’s QAPI
- Identify high-risk, high-volume,
problem-prone areas of care and choose appropriate targets for improvement
- Learn techniques of Root Cause
Analysis, brainstorming and PDSA (rapid cycle improvement using
Plan-Do-Study-Act) as part of your QAPI process, and take home chart audit
tools specific for your chosen measures.
- Apply QAPI principles and
processes for an infection control measure, an outcome measure and a process
measure using home health case studies
- Take home templates adapted for
your target outcomes, including problem statement, root cause analysis, action
plan, PDSA worksheets, and monitoring tools.
- Identify data resources, Home
Health Quality Improvement best practice packages and other resources to
compliment your QAPI activities
- Discuss how care coordination best
practices can be integrated into QAPI to improve outcome measure performance
and patient satisfaction scores.
