St. Louis Park, Minn. – January 30, 2020 – Tracey Robinson, LPN, Certified Resident Assessment Coordinator (RAC-CT) and Clinical Reimbursement Supervisor at Sholom, received an Influential award from the American Association of Post-Acute Care Nursing (AAPACN). The award cites Robinson for “actions that advocate for or affect change, either internally or externally, for the long-term and post-acute field.” She will receive her award at the AAPACN annual conference, April 15-17, 2020, in Atlanta, Ga.

“I feel honored to receive this award,” said Tracey. “Senior care has been my passion for more than 30 years, beginning with a part-time job as a nursing assistant at the age of 16. Since then, I have seen so many improvements in senior care. Today, it is more resident-centered than ever.”

“Tracey embodies the culture of Sholom and works every day to improve the quality of care we provide those who use our services,” said Barbara Klick, Sholom Chief Executive Officer. “We are fortunate to have her as part of our team.”

Tracey, a native of Robbinsdale, Minn., has been with Sholom since 2016. In her current role, she assists Sholom staff in maintaining a high level of quality resident care. “Being proactive helps us achieve great scores under the quality domain of the 5 Star Report, which contains 15 quality measures,” she said. “Our annual mock surveys at each facility provide valuable feedback to our teams, which help to provide continuous improvement for the care we deliver while assisting in preparation for the actual survey.” Tracey also monitors all Medicare quality reimbursement programs, ensuring the data are accurate and reflective of the processes in place at Sholom.

Tracey is a member of the LeadingAge Quality and Performance Excellence Committee and has participated in the organization’s political advocacy days at the Minnesota state capitol. She also is part of the CareChoice Performance-Based Incentive Payment Program (PIPP) development committee and assists teams with annual performance improvement projects through the Minnesota Department of Human Services.

In addition to the Influential award, AAPACN annually recognizes long-term and post-acute care professionals for integrity, innovation and inspiration. AAPACN represents more than 17,000 professionals in more than 5,700 facilities, providing education, certification, resources and collaborative communities.
