Our CMS and Joint Commission survey education, preparation and rescue services can be tailored to any organization’s size, scope of services or specific accreditation or regulatory need.

Hospitals are required to be in compliance with the Federal requirements set forth in the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoP) in order to receive Medicare/Medicaid payment. The goal of a hospital survey is to determine if the hospital is in compliance with the CoP set forth at 42 CFR Part 482. On top of which, all hospital surveys are unannounced. Now, with our survey strategies and answers at your command, there is no reason to be unprepared for your surveys – or go through them alone.
