Synopsis:
Long-term care quality measures (QM) provide a snapshot of the care delivered in a facility. This information affects facilities' star ratings and gives customers a key source of information that reveals how well a facility is caring for its residents' physical and clinical needs. However, getting a comprehensive picture of how QMs function can be time-consuming due to CMS' extensive QM manual. Long-Term Care Quality Measures: A Guide to Data Analysis, Performance Improvement, and Public Reporting provides a thorough drilldown of each QM. It supplies detailed explanations of each measure's description, including numerator, denominator, and the facility's and surveyor's perspectives. This resource provides strategies for using your QM data to achieve performance improvement, insight into how CMS uses your QM data, and tips on using public reporting to track your quality improvement efforts. Customers will also receive an on-the-go quick reference tool. Through an easy-to-read chart, our QM crosswalk will allow facilities to navigate each QM within seconds and understand how each measure will affect the facility's star rating, survey compliance, or Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement. Understanding how to analyze your QM data can help facilities: Achieve a five-star rating on Nursing Home Compare Establish a good reputation to attract potential customers Gain referrals from hospitals Avoid audits and pass surveys Increase quality of care and reimbursement
