Bandera Healthcare, 12-facility long-term care group in Arizona, was looking for a quality assurance system that was more resident centered rather than its current program. By using abaqis, Bandera’s facilities not only identify what their residents specifically like and dislike about their care, it also is helping the staff prepare for the new Quality Indicator Survey being rolled out across Arizona and eventually the entire country.
