Quality Indicator Survey

PRIME Services in conjunction with Medline, would like you to know about Abaqis.  Abaqis is the only quality assessment and reporting system that is tied directly into the QIS.

Abaqis is a web- based application that uses the same calculations, thresholds and analysis as the QIS to quickly highlight residents at risk.

Abaqis is designed to eliminate the guesswork when preparing for the new survey.  It can do this because it exactly replicates the QIS process.

Please contact PRIME Services for more information at 866-585-3344, Ext. 115.
