In 2006, QIRT was founded by CEO Laura Page-Greifinger, BSN, MPA who worked in home care and hospice for over 30 years as a nurse, supervisor, and clinical consultant. QIRT's initial service was providing multiple types of quality assurance reviews and coding to the home care and hospice community including OASIS/485 review, hospice coding and eligibility reviews, QA reviews, and ADR reviews.
All care providers have workflow processes or operations that create a patient journey from initial referral through reimbursement. The workflow requires quality assurance, education, compliance, and operational strategy within each step of a comprehensive and cyclical process, what QIRT calls: Quality Cycle Management (QCM). QIRT has acquired four post-acute service companies and formed five specialized divisions designed to support post-acute agencies throughout the quality management cycle.
QIRT's employees come from 44 states and most work remotely. The company works 24/7/365 days a year.
In 2017, QIRT was named to the 2017 Inc. 500/5000 List of Fastest Growing Companies for the fifth consecutive year. As a leader in the post-acute support industry, QIRT earned the position of 1486, showing a three-year growth of 273%. Inc. magazine reports that companies making this list have, on average, grown six-fold since 2013 in the face of an economy that grew just 6.7 percent during that time. Of the thousands of companies who have applied for this distinction, only 7% made the list five times, placing QIRT on the Inc. 5000 Honor Roll.
