Due to the growing concerns presented by COVID-19 (the coronavirus) and out of an abundance of caution for nursing facility staff, Mass Senior Care Association is postponing educational programs scheduled in March 2020.  We are attempting to reschedule for a later date and will keep all registrants updated once we have a new date.





Quality Assurance & Performance Improvement Certification Program (CHHi-QAPI)*

Presented in Partnership with Harmony Healthcare International (HHI)
March 24 and March 25, 2020
8:30 am – 3:30 pm each day
(Registration begins at 8:00 am)

Program Description: This 2-day course offers participants a robust understanding of the QAPI methodology. Quality Assurance & Performance Improvement (QAPI) is a data-driven, proactive approach to improving the quality of life, care, and services in organizational settings.  CMS requires that healthcare entities implement and effectively demonstrate a program that encompasses the principles and methods associated with ongoing monitoring of outcomes.  A QAPI program provides the facility level team members a forum and platform to identify areas of growth, risk and refinement that potentially impact the quality of care rendered to the patient population or negatively impinge on the financial well-being of the organization.  Effective QAPI programs are critical to improving the quality of life, quality of care and quality of services that are delivered in nursing homes. 

Upon completion of the 2-Day workshop, access to the CHHi-QAPI certification exam via email will be available.  Take the exam at your own pace within 90 days.  If you score 80% or higher, you pass the exam and will receive your CHHi-QAPI credential.
