Providigm creates practical solutions that health care providers can use every day to improve quality. We bring together scientific capability, clinical expertise and information technology in a single organization to solve the most pressing challenges that providers face. Our goal is to assist providers in meeting the evolving requirements of health care consumers and policy makers.
This core philosophy stems from the passion of our founder and CEO, Dr. Andrew Kramer. He believed the potential of the new Quality Indicator Survey (QIS) process would only be realized if providers were empowered with the same quality metrics and tools as surveyors. In response, he and his brother Peter started Providigm in December 2006 to provide a way for nursing homes to understand and achieve success under QIS. The result was the abaqis® Quality Management System that replicates the entire QIS methodology.
The value of abaqis goes far beyond survey readiness and is the foundation for our expanded solutions in quality assurance, performance improvement, customer satisfaction, readmission and compliance. It is the foundation for our continued growth in healthcare software development, provider education and the framework for new research that crosses health care settings and international borders.
At Providigm, we work closely with our customers. We constantly utilize their feedback to upgrade the capabilities of our software and to improve the content of our educational products. Our team of talented scientists, trainers and client service representatives are always prepared to assist with questions or discuss ideas for product improvements. This is all part of our commitment to always explore new ideas, always use a scientific approach, and always strive to understand the needs of the providers.
