Resources: A Framework for Successful Clinical Outcomes


Success in achieving positive resident and patient outcomes is even more critical now than ever before. The link between quality and payment in long term and post-acute care is growing stronger, as evidenced by the SNF Value Based Purchasing (VBP) Program, the Improving Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT) Act, the SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP) and more. The AHCA Clinical Practice Committee created: Building Prevention into Every Day Practice: Framework for Successful Clinical Outcomes.

This Framework highlights key elements that are critical to successful organizational and clinical outcomes.  These elements reflect common denominators that cross multiple care situations including reducing unintended health care outcomes, rehospitalizations, antipsychotic medication use, improving discharge to the community, functional status and more. Applying this framework into practice can help build and strengthen a foundation for improved resident and patient outcomes in addition to more efficient use of staff, time, and resources.


Supplemental materials to support applying the framework into every day practice are available including video vignettes, worksheets, conversation starters with key takeaways, and checklists for you and your organization to use. Embark on the journey through the Framework today!
