Quality Assurance Performance Improvement (QAPI) programs are essential for skilled nursing facilities to provide high-quality care to their residents. However, developing and managing a QAPI program can be challenging. Fortunately, there are tools available to help, such as Welbi, a resident experience platform that includes a variety of features designed to support QAPI programs.
Here are four ways that Welbi can help to support a QAPI program:
Welbi's insights feature tracks and analyzes resident data in real time. This allows skilled nursing facilities to proactively identify areas for improvement and monitor progress over time. Accurate and actionable data helps communities to develop effective QAPI initiatives.
Welbi includes goal-setting and reporting features that can help facilities track progress toward their QAPI goals and measure the effectiveness of their initiatives. Facilities can set goals, track progress, and generate reports to share with stakeholders demonstrating the impact of their QAPI program.
An effective QAPI program should involve staff from all departments in a skilled nursing facility. Welbi centralizes QAPI data by integrating with your facility’s existing EHR system. This enables nursing and life enrichment staff to share information with each other and collaborate on QAPI initiatives.
Welbi includes resident engagement features that can help improve resident satisfaction and overall quality of life. The platform analyzes resident data to match life enrichment programs to their needs, hobbies, and preferences. It also alerts teams when a resident is at risk of isolation and needs engagement. Welbi is an effective tool in the QAPI process that helps facilities design initiatives that are tailored to their residents’ unique needs.
In conclusion, managing a QAPI program is challenging, but tools like Welbi can help skilled nursing facilities to develop and implement effective QAPI initiatives. Welbi's comprehensive features make it an excellent tool for managing a QAPI program, providing valuable data, goal tracking, staff communication, and resident engagement features to support QAPI initiatives. By leveraging technology to support their QAPI program, facilities can make more meaningful improvements in the quality of care they provide to their residents.
