PIP - Provider Initiative Project
CHSRA researchers have developed PIP (Provider Initiative Project) to provide long-term care facilities in-depth Quality Indicator/Quality Measure (QI/QM) information using MDS assessment data. The heart of quality improvement is reliable information. CHSRA's state-of-the-art data submission and reporting system allows you to quickly and concisely analyze QI/QM status and trends for your facility. The data you receive will help your facility ensure quality care for all residents, improve your quality improvement process and survey performance. By submitting your MDS data electronically to CHSRA, you have access to a variety of important reports and resources for your facility at any time.
As a PIP member, your facility joins an elite group of facilities nationwide on the cutting edge of quality improvement.
Why should your facility participate in PIP?
If you value the features that PIP offers, you can be a part of this exciting project! For additional information about PIP services, please contact us by phone or email to discuss PIP membership.

ePIP (CHSRA's electronic submission and report generation system) allows you to easily submit MDS data via a secure internet website. Submitting data to CHSRA does not, however, eliminate the requirement to submit MDS data to your state. You still must submit your data separately to your individual state for MDS reporting purposes.
QUALITY INDICATOR/QUALITY MEASURE HISTORY
This report is a list of your facility's QI/QM percentage for the current quarter and your facility's QI/QM percentages for the previous four quarters. This report can be used to view your population's QI/QM percentages over time and to see trends or changes and compare these results to the comparison group percentages.
QUALITY INDICATOR/QUALITY MEASURE GRAPHS
The Quality Indicato/Quality Measurer Graph report is a visual representation of your QI/QM percentages over time. The comparison group's averages, as well as the 25th and 75th percentile results are displayed on the same graph. The graphs can be run either by month or quarter; and you can choose to graph some or all of the QI/QMs. These graphs are a great way to view your QI/QM percentages over time, see trends or changes and evaluate your results against the comparison group percentages.
INDIVIDUAL QUALITY INDICATOR/QUALITY MEASURE SERIES
The Individual Quality Indicator/Quality Measure Series report helps to make it easier to view all residents who flagged on a particular QI/QM. This is a new ePIP report which is not available from any state MDS system. It contains information similar to the Resident Quality Indicator/Quality Measure Summary Report; however, this report presents a separate QI/QM on each page. It can be used to look more closely at an individual QI/QM and see all the residents who flagged on that particular QI/QM. This series of reports could also be used to further investigate clinically linked QI/QMs.

POST-ACUTE QUALITY INDICATORS/QUALITY MEASURES
The report center is the place to start for all report related features of ePIP. There is a great deal of flexibility to the report selections, parameters and comparison groups that the user may choose. Here the user can:
ePIP provides all the standard reports available from your state agencies as well as many new and exciting graphs and reports. Click here to view samples of many of the reports available to members of ePIP.
SPECIFIC QI GUIDES
The Specific QI Guides present a step-by-step process for the Assessment of MDS Information, Decision Making, Care Planning, Implementation and Monitoring/Evaluation phases of QI investigation. They include a thorough list of references, recommended reading, websites for further review, and appendices.
DATA COLLECTION TOOL
The Data Collection Tool helps you select a sample of residents and to systematically examine whether your facility has a problem in a particular care area.
