August 2015 Excerpt

 
Have you reviewed your Performance Report?

Qualis Health produces quarterly Performance Reports—which include trends in quality measures, composite scores, and rehospitalizations—for every nursing home in Idaho and Washington.

We are introducing a new distribution method. This week, instructions regarding how to access the reports are being emailed to all nursing home administrators. Administrators: If you do not receive that email, or if you have any problems accessing the report, please contact Suzie Potter for assistance.

Do you need help understanding any of the report’s analyses? Not sure how to act upon the information? Get the answers you need by attending our August 19 webinar!
