Quality Assurance (QA) and Performance Improvement (PI) is one of three CoP sections with a correlating CMS worksheet. State and federal surveyors use the worksheet on all survey activities in hospitals when assessing compliance with the QAPI standards, including validation and certification surveys.
Our expert will also discuss the CMS memo on Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Common Formats. The Common Formats define a systematic process for reporting adverse events, near misses, and unsafe conditions, and allow a hospital to report harm from all causes. CMS estimated that 86% of adverse events are never reported to the hospital’s PI program, which is why QAPI is an area of focus for surveyors.
