Look for a hardcopy mailing coming soon!
Passwords are changing for Qualis Health's performance reports

The identification necessary to retrieve your facility's report from Qualis Health's Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) will now change with each quarter.

Shortly before a new edition is released, we will mail a letter—addressed to the facility's administrator—that contains the new username and password.

For questions or assistance with this process, please email Suzie Potter.

Two nursing homes earn awards for falls reduction projects

You might be surprised at the results of stratifying your QAPI analysis by these important characteristics. To ensure that your organization is addressing the needs of all your residents, consider acting upon these resources for overcoming racial disparities.
