Regulatory Crisis Response & Remediation

We help Hospitals get out of trouble, and stay out of trouble.

As a trusted partner and ally, we help hospitals to improve and sustain compliance, safety, and efficiency. We have more combined experience than any other team in the country in helping hospitals successfully respond to urgent CMS matters such as a Statement of Deficiencies or Notice of Termination or Immediate Jeopardy.

Our proven track record has earned the respect and approval of CMS and has made us the #1 choice of hospital leaders and legal counsel who require an effective independent consultant for their Systems Improvement Agreement (SIA).

CMS Termination Letters: What they mean and what to do if you get one

Infographic - CMS Termination

While it’s not something any hospital wants to acknowledge, the threat of receiving a CMS Statement of Deficiencies (CMS Form 2567) with Notice of Immediate Jeopardy or Notice of Termination is a reality. Hundreds of hospitals receive such notice every year.

Because hospitals must be in compliance with all CoPs to continue participation in the Medicare program, it is imperative that you know how to respond to a CMS termination letter.

Greeley invites you to download our infographic that summarizes the key components of CMS termination letters and provides the five critical actions hospitals in this situation must take.

Why Greeley?

Greeley is the leading consulting company approved by CMS to lead Systems Improvement Agreements. One CMS regional office representative recently proclaimed “When Greeley gets involved with one of our providers, we feel reassured. We know things will change for the better!”

Greeley’s unique approach to regulatory challenges involves focus and simplification. Our experts know how to make the right thing to do the easy thing to do. By following the natural contours of healthcare delivery, our experts know how to whittle a 20 page policy down to 1 or 2 pages, describing straightforward and natural expectations that comply with the regulation, yet can be successfully carried out by a first year graduate physician or a new nurse on his or her first day alone at the bedside.

Our experts have decades of experience in regulatory compliance and hospital operations, allowing them to craft a solution to vexing challenges that simultaneously ensure patient and staff safety, promote the best possible outcomes, and protect the organization’s resources. It is not easy to achieve and sustain compliance while satisfying patients, physicians, staff members … and chief financial officers. But Greeley can, and does so over and over again, every day of the week, from coast to coast.

FOCUS AND SIMPLIFY

Find simple, natural ways to integrate compliance into efficient, safe and satisfying operations

Decades of regulatory and consulting experience has taught Greeley that the best way-perhaps the only way-to lead hospitals out of trouble is to quickly focus on the big issues

High concepts? Perhaps. But Greeley has reduced these concepts into practical, repeatable tools that work over and over again to free hospitals from CMS threats and protect them from falling back into jeopardy once the survey team leaves.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

“Our experience with the Greeley consultants has been wonderful! From the beginning of our consultation, it was clear that they were professional, skilled, committed, and willing to do whatever it required to get the job done right. Without our consultant and his group, our institution would be in deep trouble right now. The Greeley consultants were able to assist me with hands-on, state-of-the-art approaches to satisfy the regulators and with strategic approaches to implement the cultural change needed to make the new systems self-sustaining. The skills that Greeley brought to the table were top-notch. The willingness to go the extra mile was amazing. I would recommend Greeley unconditionally. They are simply great!”
