NAHAM CMS Toolkit Overview

Presented by: Michael Sciarabba and Yvonne Focke
Contact Hours: 1.0 NAHAM Contact Hours
Recorded: September 24, 2013

NAHAM's Policy Development and Government Relations Committee has constructed a CMS Survey Toolkit to help you and your facility prepare for your next CMS Survey. The toolkit is modeled on the earlier released Joint Commission Survey Toolkit, with a Preparedness Checklist and Question Sets. The Areas of Focus of the CMS Survey Toolkit are Patient's Rights, Patient Abuse, Physical Environment, Infection Control, Medical Necessity, Medical Secondary Payer Audit and Education, Advance Directives, Charity Care, and Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). The webinar will review the preparedness checklist and these areas of focus. It is a preparation tool that can be used by Access leaders and front line staff to assist in preparing for the audit.

The toolkit also provides a number of Resources and Links, including a glossary of CMS terms, a list of relevant acronyms, links to CMS training sites and its Online Manual System. The toolkit also includes Appendix A (Survey Protocol, Regulations and Interpretive Guidelines for Hospitals) and Appendix Q (Guidelines for Determining Immediate Jeopardy) of the State Operations Manual. There is also a direct link to the CMS Conditions of Participation for Hospitals.

*NAHAM membership is not required to view webinars, but you must be logged onto the NAHAM website to access the online store.
