abaqis® Quality Management
abaqis® Quality Management System
Improve Your Quality of Care and Survey Results
Achieve resident-centered care while improving survey results with the only system that duplicates the assessments and calculations of the Quality Indicator Survey (QIS).
You provide quality care for your residents because it’s the right thing to do. You focus on survey performance because it’s required. You address federal regulations because it’s the law. Now, one quality assurance (QA) tool helps drive success in all three.
Consistent use of abaqis® helps prepare you for either QIS or traditional surveys with proven results. It uses a combination of resident interviews, observations and record reviews to provide actionable data that identifies the regulatory areas where you should focus your quality improvement efforts. The emphasis on resident-centered feedback also helps you pinpoint customer satisfaction areas that need attention.
abaqis® is ideally suited for quality improvement because it facilitates daily assessment at a sustainable level and combines that with real-time drill-down analysis for facility-level use and roll-up reporting for managing multi-facility organizations. Using abaqis® helps you identify the root cause of issues and concerns, so you can allocate resources to the specific areas where you most need improvement. Whether you employ it for QA and performance improvement, regulatory compliance, or customer satisfaction, being able to focus your improvement efforts helps you to spend more time on resident care.
