About Providigm QAPI Accreditation

Providigm’s QAPI Accreditation program was introduced in 2013 as the first national accreditation for Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) for nursing centers. The program is based on standards for excellence in continuously improving quality of care and life for nursing center residents. The accreditation standards, or Four C’s, include measures of the extent to which nursing homes assess the care they provide to their post-acute and long-term care residents, and then correct quality concerns.
