Identifying and Resolving Threats to Medicare Certification
State surveys are a daily occurrence in hospitals across the country. These surveys often blossom into full CMS inspections that threaten the hospital’s Medicare certification — a threat that can become a reality unless the survey is skillfully managed and corrective actions are prompt, effective and sustained.
The Greeley Company is excited to announce a free webinar that will share lessons learned from over 30 years of helping hospitals across the country successfully resolve threats to their Medicare certification and stay out of trouble.
The webinar agenda includes:
- Understanding the differences between state agency/CMS hospital surveys and surveys conducted by the Joint Commission and other accrediting organizations
- Building a mutually beneficial relationship with state surveyors
- Successfully responding to threats of termination, including allegations of immediate jeopardy
- Crafting a realistic plan of correction without making promises you can’t possibly keep
- Successfully passing follow-up visits
