The prevalence of mood/depressive symptoms QI
and the mood with no treatment QIs
are not risk adjusted.
Glitches delayed some states' data production, and the match-up between the QIs
, MDS, and resident census data can be poor.
Based on a two-stage quality assessment approach first developed at the University of Colorado in 1993, the QIS
has experienced years of pilot testing and evaluation in three phases in seven states.
Facts: In 1995, in a series of planned transactions, the taxpayer transferred real properties to a QI
, TGE, which then sold them to unrelated third parties.
The 24 QIs
were developed as the foundation for a national analytic reporting system based on MDS data.
have been developed to provide a foundation for both external and internal QA and quality-improvement activities.
Brian Lindsay, Director of Business Development identified that, "The addition of Fast Tek's specialty services and expanded geographic footprint will allow QIS
to provide more broad range of capabilities to our customers.
Thus, when encumbered relinquished property is conveyed to a QI
, the partner's share of liabilities is reduced.
Moreover, many of the current software systems used by long-term care providers cannot produce either real-time or trended reports on MDS QIs
, including the new CMS QMs; this results in individual facilities being unable to access their own QM data and, therefore, possibly having to wait for CMS or state agencies to publish their data before being able to evaluate the information and implement appropriate corrective actions.
In the proposed guidelines, a waiver was allowed for QIs
with no more than 2,000 direct and indirect accountholders.
The second report, "Facility Quality Indicator Profile," details a single facility's performance for each of the Domains and QIs
compared to all other facilities in the state.
However, in certain circumstances, the new QI
regime creates further conflict for foreign QIs
, when confidentiality cannot be maintained.
