QAPI Outsourcing

Outsourcing is an effective cost-saving strategy in planning, developing and implementing a meaningful Quality Assessment Performance Improvement (QAPI) program. It reduces the need to hire and train specialized staff and allows an agency to build a team of skilled professionals without adding the expense of full-time employees, such as payroll taxes, health insurance and worker’s compensation.

 

Outsourcing ultimately offers hospice business owners great advantages. When you outsource, you can focus your time, attention and resources on your company’s goals and finding ways to achieve them. Hospice Advantage Solutions is committed to providing cost-effective, secure and compliant outsourcing for your QAPI Program with deep insight and proven results

 

The hospice must develop, implement, and maintain an effective, ongoing, hospice-wide data-driven QAPI Program. The program must reflect the complexity of its organization and services; involve all hospice services; focus on indicators related to improved palliative outcomes; and take actions to demonstrate improvement in hospice performance. The hospice must maintain documentary evidence of its quality assessment and performance improvement program and be able to demonstrate its operation to CMS.

 

With public reporting on the horizon to increase the transparency of the quality of care provided and the competition growing tougher, hospice leaders need to ask themselves these questions:

 

  • How will we prepare for public reporting?

  • How will our satisfaction surveys impact our referrals?

  • How do we engage our staff and hold them accountable for results?

  • Is our QAPI Program defined, organized and implemented in a way that can be demonstrated to surveyors?

 

By partnering with Hospice Advantage Solutions, your agency will gain immeasurable insight into what drives your performance. We will help you to:

 

  • Incorporate your performance improvement activities into one program

  • Use data collection, aggregation, trending and benchmarking to improve your performance

  • Develop your Performance Improvement Projects

  • Minimize compliance and legislative risks

  • Reduce payroll and overhead costs

 

By eliminating the administrative burden of full time QAPI staff, more resources can be dedicated to executing your agency’s mission and goals. Let us help you to bring your QAPI Program into compliance and improve your agency’s outcomes.
