Healthwin Receives National Accreditation for Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) Efforts.

Healthwin has again received accreditation as a skilled nursing facility actively performing Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) activities. The accreditation, presented by independent accreditor, Providigm, LLC, demonstrates that the facility is continually assessing residents quality of life with regard to concerns such as pain, dignity, respect for resident choice, and quality of care problems such as whether there are enough staff to meet resident needs, weight loss, infections, rehabilitation following acute injury or illness, and prevention of readmissions to hospital.

“This accreditation signifies that Healthwin is committed to continuously improving the care that they provide based on feedback from residents and families,” says Dr. Andrew Kramer, Providigm CEO, and international expert on measuring quality of elder care. “We congratulate Healthwin on their commitment to improve the quality of life and care given to our elders.”

Unlike other rating systems, the Providigm QAPI Accreditation is based on actions that nursing centers take to identify and correct quality problems. The methodology of QAPI is widely used in various health care settings, and is becoming a major focus of nursing home regulation.

“We are extremely proud of the work our care team has accomplished to achieve this accreditation,” said Teresa Smucker, Administrator. “We take quality seriously. We strive to give our residents the quality of life and level of dignity they deserve.”
