Issaquah Nursing and Rehabilitation Center has received the Basic Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement Accreditation in 2017.

This accreditation is evaluated and presented by independent accreditor, Providigm, LLC. Through Issaquah Nursing & Rehabilitation Center use of the abaqis Quality Management System, Providigm is able to verify that the center is continually assessing the quality of the care they provide to their residents against federal regulations and standards at an ongoing rate, and correcting identified issues.

“In the fall of 2016, CMS released revised regulation for skilled nursing facilities requiring a comprehensive program for Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI),” said Andrew Kramer, M.D., chief executive officer at Providigm, in a press release. “The new regulations revolutionize the way SNFs manage quality assurance by requiring a comprehensive data-driven approach. Through their use of abaqis, Issaquah Nursing & Rehabilitation Center has proactively adopted this methodology and is an excellent example of a facility constantly monitoring the quality of life and care of their residents and implementing changes to make them even better.”

“We are extremely proud of this award. It acknowledges the hard work and dedication that my team and I have given to make Issaquah Nursing and Rehabilitation Center an outstanding facility,” added Lisa Stubenrauch, administrator of Issaquah Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
