LeadingAge Unveils Comprehensive Resource for Quality Professionals
LeadingAge National has unveiled a new resource, developed in conjunction with the LeadingAge Quality & Risk Management Advisory Group, that compiles a wealth of resources for quality professionals in skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) into one handy guide. The guide includes sections on key contacts, both at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and LeadingAge, as well as information on the Five-Star Rating System and other quality measurement programs. It also includes information and links to benchmarking and payment resources, LeadingAge and CMS tools for providers, and descriptions of software used by clinical staff of member organizations. Information on regulations and CMS communication sources, along with an acronym glossary, round out the guide.
Whether you are deeply involved in quality initiatives or just want to learn more about nursing home quality-related programs, from 5-Star ratings to Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) or from the Quality Reporting Program (QRP) to Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) reporting, this resource will lead you where you need to go. The guide also features LeadingAge NY-developed resources used in other states, including 5-Star Reports, Quality Metrics, and Quality Apex.
