CMS Updates its QAPI Interpretive Guidelines

Clinical Quality Insights

On March 9, 2023, CMS released new and comprehensive interpretive guidelines for the hospital Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement (QAPI) Condition of Participation, which is the third most frequently cited regulation during State Agency/CMS surveys.

The good news is that the 21-page guidance document aligns with CCQS's decades of experience in improving safety, quality, and efficiency as it helps hospitals across the country resolve threats to their Medicare certification.

Join our webinar for practical advice on how to comply with the new QAPI expectations. By following these common-sense guidelines your organization can better protect patients, ensure that improvements are effective and sustained, and connect the board room with the bedside. Our experts will review the new QAPI interpretive guidelines in detail, provide practical, common-sense approaches to persistent flaws in quality and safety efforts, and make the connection between governing/executive leadership and actual practices at the point of care and services.
