Course Curriculum
This five-part webinar series will cover the entire Critical Access Hospital (CAH) Conditions of Participation (CoP) manual from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This program offers an excellent opportunity to educate everyone in your hospital on all the CMS manual sections, especially ones that apply to their department.

Part Five will review Quality Assurance & Performance Improvement (QAPI) worksheet and program requirements.

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Recall that CMS has a worksheet on QAPI.
  • Describe that there is a section on QAPI in the CMS hospital CoP manual that any hospital that accepts Medicare or Medicaid reimbursement must follow.
  • Discuss the rewritten QAPI requirements CMS implemented for CAHs.
  • Discuss the Governing Board’s ultimately responsible for the QAPI program and must ensure there are adequate resources for PI.
  • Recall that hospitals are receiving a high number of deficiencies in QAPI.
