The Quality Initiative Fact Sheet

The American Health Care Association (AHCA) has broadened its Quality Initiative* to further improve the quality of care in America’s skilled nursing care centers. The expansion of the Initiative will challenge members to apply the Baldrige Excellence Framework to meet measurable targets in eight critical areas by March 2018. These areas are aligned with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)’ Quality Assurance/Performance Improvement (QAPI) program and federal mandates, such as Five-Star and the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act.
