Quality Improvement

qapi05_header

For more than four decades, Qsource has been committed to assisting with the quality of care and utilization of services provided to healthcare consumers. Our primary focus has been on Medicare and Medicaid populations, but our quality improvement services are beneficial for all healthcare providers and the communities they serve.

We offer setting-specific and topic-specific training events, tools and resources to help providers/practitioners improve in selected quality measures and in meeting compliance requirements. Our quality improvement teams work hand-in-hand with healthcare professionals to assist in improving the quality of care.

Qsource helps facilitate provider/practitioner participation in multiple national and state quality initiatives through our divisions and subsidiaries. Since 1973, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has contracted with Qsource to serve as a Medicare Quality Improvement Organization (QIO), and we have since expanded quality improvement assistance to include evolving healthcare practitioner needs such as workflow assessment, quality data abstraction/reporting, trauma and health information technology.

Trauma Quality Improvement Organization

Qsource-Arkansas serves as the Trauma Quality Improvement Organization for Arkansas.

We review the quality of services provided to patients at facility, regional and statewide levels; and promote optimal outcomes for Arkansas trauma patients through collaborative outreach and education throughout the trauma care system.

We collect and analyze Arkansas trauma performance measure data and provide healthcare data reports on multiple provider levels whose outcomes are presented to key trauma stakeholders and providers.

We work with the Arkansas Department of Health, the Governor’s Trauma Advisory Council and the Trauma Regional Advisory Councils to perform this work.
