Join us during the HQ Showcase: Avoid Survey Disasters through Simplification

September 17, 2019 | 1:05 p.m. to 1:35 p.m.


  • Avoid Survey Disasters through Simplification
    Tuesday, September 17
    1:05 – 1:35 PM
    • Half of the hospital surveys conducted by The Joint Commission this year will end in disaster, with one or more noncompliant Medicare Conditions of Participation. Some of these surveys will also lead to Preliminary Denial of Joint Commission Accreditation. Hospitals must also cope with unannounced surveys for CMS compliance by the State Agency, most of which result in a threat to the hospital’s Medicare Certification. Greeley shares how to Avoid Survey Disasters through Simplification in this 30-minute session.This information-packed showcase session will introduce you to Greeley’s proven approach to preparing for the worst and navigating the survey process for a successful outcome. Greeley’s Vice President for Compliance Content will walk you through what to expect, the best way to avoid a survey disaster, and Greeley’s proven approach to quickly resolving threats to accreditation or certification. The session will also cover Greeley’s “simplification” approach to decreasing policies, effective deployment strategies, meaningful process monitoring and feedback, streamlined documentation, and safer, more compliant patient care and service.
    • Speaker: Bud Pate, Vice President, Compliance Content, The Greeley Company
