Program Description

This webinar is a must for all hospitals. This webinar will discuss the new interpretative guidelines for QAPI that were published in March, 2023 as well discuss the QAPI program conditions of participation for critical access hospitals, which went into effect March 30, 2021, and the changes made to the conditions of participation for general acute hospitals that went into effect Nov. 29, 2019. This is one of three conditions of participation for which CMS has published a worksheet to guide surveyors through the process to determine whether hospitals comply with this condition.

Program Objectives

At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Discuss the board responsibility for the QAPI program.
  • Explain changes to the general acute hospital QAPI standards and interpretative guidelines.
  • Explain the basic requirements for an effective QAPI program.
  • Review the QAPI worksheet so staff understand surveyor expectations.
