With a November deadline set for nursing homes to have a written QAPI plan in place, there is no better time than the present to begin thinking about how your organization will design and execute its QAPI program. If you think your facility will require outside support in order to develop and carry out a successful QAPI plan, then you want to start looking (pronto) at your options for external QAPI services.
Primaris has three QAPI solutions to meet the varying needs of nursing homes. If your organization has the capacity to do a majority of the legwork and just needs some planning tools, Primaris can supply templates and other materials. On the other hand, if you are looking for full-scale support, Primaris has a solution to cover that, too. Here is a peek at Primaris’ QAPI service levels:
This is a comprehensive QAPI service in which Primaris leads the development of a complete written QAPI plan and a charter performance improvement project (PIP). It involves Primaris providing support across all tasks related to the execution of the PIP for an entire year. This service includes both onsite and remote support, and it is designed to give nursing homes everything they need to provide better care and improve the quality of life for residents.
This intermediate program is designed for nursing homes that want to work jointly with a knowledgeable partner to design and execute a QAPI program. Primaris provides assistance with QAPI plan development and revision, data review, training readiness, PIP planning and more. This program aims to provide support in areas where nursing homes commonly struggle with QAPI planning and implementation. It also enables facilities to comply with regulations and experience the benefits that come with establishing an effective QAPI program.
This program gives self-sufficient nursing homes tools and training that will keep their QAPI programs on track. Primaris provides a QAPI plan template along with guidance and directions via phone consultations. This allows nursing homes to ask questions and rely on expert advice so they can be confident in their QAPI planning and execution efforts.

Even after organizations take the first few steps, and they put together a plan, there are still a lot of questions that need to be answered about how to make quality improvement ongoing.
This is a main reason why nursing homes may want to consider finding a consultant to help them with QAPI. There are many other reasons why nursing homes choose Primaris, specifically, to guide their QAPI efforts – like the fact that quality improvement has been a cornerstone of Primaris for more than 30 years.
