QAPI Program Workbook

Nancy Leveille and Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

The Lake Superior Quality Innovation Network (QIO-QIN) has developed a wonderful QAPI workbook to assist facilities develop their overall QAPI plan. It provides specific examples with each step in the process and works well with CMS' QAPI at a Glance. Our NYS QIO-QIN provided the copy for us to share with our members. See attached Guide and also CMS' QAPI at a Glance. As noted over the last year, NYSHFA expects QAPI to be one of the core elements in the CMS' new Requirements of Participation that will be enacted this fall. We encourage all members to assess their current QAPI plan and processes.
