CMS Issues QAPI Brief: Focus on Adverse Events

Holly Harmon


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has released a Volume 2 QAPI Brief which focuses on adverse events. It includes a list of potentially preventable adverse events and a medication related adverse events case study. 

The last Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) brief was issued in 2013. The next QAPI brief is expected to be on care and infection related adverse events. Reducing Unintended Health Care Outcomes is one of the goals of the AHCA Quality Initiative. Visit the AHCA Quality Initiative site to learn more and to review available resources.
