CMS issued the Hospital Improvement Rule in November 2019 which included changes to Quality Assessment Performance Improvement (QAPI) standards. This program will discuss the revised CMS hospital QAPI standards for Critical Access Hospitals. CMS implemented similar QAPI standards applicable to acute hospitals for critical access hospitals.
The QAPI worksheet was designed to help surveyors assess compliance with the hospital CoPs for QAPI. Though the worksheet was never utilized in a CAH and is no longer utilized by State and Federal surveyors on survey activity, it is an excellent selfassessment and/or gap analysis tool any size hospitals can utilize to assist with compliance. The CMS QAPI worksheet is also an excellent communication tool so that the hospital will know what the expectations are from CMS.
This program will discuss the memo that CMS issued regarding the AHRQ Common Formats. CMS stated there are several reports that show that adverse events are not being reported. It is estimated that 86% of adverse events are never reported to the hospital’s PI program. Performance improvement is very important to CMS and the hospital conditions of participation require many things to be measured.
