The Silver program provides a clear pathway for recipients moving to the Gold – Excellence in Quality Award

AHCA/NCAL research has demonstrated that Silver and Gold recipients have superior performance in lower rates of readmissions & antipsychotic use, higher 5 star ratings, & higher average occupancy rates

The demands of the Quality Award criteria prepare providers for CMS’ QAPI program.
