Wilsonville, Oregon (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
Sixteen Avamere Family of Companies skilled nursing facilities achieved Providigm QAPI Accreditation, which recognizes dedication to continuous improvement of quality in nursing home care. These facilities (located in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho) have met the excellence standards set forth by the program and are recognized among the top performing nursing homes and centers in the United States.
The Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) accreditation is based on four data-driven standards that measure the facility’s use of Providigm’s abaqis® system, a survey tool used to ensure compliance with federal regulation. Exceeding all four standards leads to full accreditation and provisional accreditation is given to facilities that meet three out of four. The Avamere Family of Companies currently has 16 Fully Accredited and 8 Provisionally Accredited facilities.
“To see so many of our facilities reach this standard of excellence reflects well on our mission to enhance the life of every person we serve,” said Avamere President Gary Wart.
Avamere Family of Companies’ commitment to Providigm’s accreditation system is in line with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to increase resident-centered care in skilled nursing facilities and to reduce preventable hospital readmissions. Several Avamere facilities were recognized in these areas earlier this year including deficiency free surveys from Avamere Rehabilitation of Junction City and Avamere Rehabilitation of Oregon City.
