  • The Quality Initiative 2015-2018: What’s New & What it Means for You

    Contains 2 Component(s) Recorded On: 05/28/2015

    This webinar will provide an overview of progress to date, outline the new goal areas for the next three years and review strategies and resources to help members on their journey to continued improvement in performance on the Quality Initiative goals.

    Building on the success demonstrated by AHCA members in improving quality in four priority target areas since the announcement of the Quality Initiative in 2012, AHCA has expanded this effort to further improve the quality of care in America's skilled nursing care centers over the next three years. The expansion of the Initiative challenges members to apply a systematic approach to meet measurable targets in eight critical areas by March 2018. These areas are aligned with national mandates by the federal government, such as the Five-Star Quality Rating System and the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act. The next three years of the Quality Initiative will help members continue to make these target areas their focus and to achieve sustained improvements. This webinar will provide an overview of progress to date, outline the new goal areas for the next three years and review strategies and resources to help members on their journey to continued improvement in performance on the Quality Initiative goals.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Review progress to date on AHCA's Quality Initiative.
    2. Discuss the new goal areas and the rationale for their selection.
    3. Review systematic quality improvement strategies and AHCA resources to support member success in meeting the identified goals.
