Quality Improvement in Senior Living: The Need for Objective Data
Beyond initial determination of the services a resident needs during the senior living admission process, there is typically sparse data about how staff provide that care daily. Additionally, many communities offer exercise, social and activity programs with little data about the impact of such programs on residents’ functioning and quality of life. Learn about the usefulness of objective data for assessing the quality of daily care delivery and evaluating the appropriateness and impact of programs in this care setting. Representatives from two senior living communities will describe practical examples of ways they have utilized objective data to assess care quality, evaluate structured activity programs and guide improvement efforts.
