AHDI Comments on Proposed Changes to Survey and Certification Requirements

Wednesday, June 14, 2017  

The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) published Proposed Rules on April 28, 2017. Included in the 436-page document were proposed changes to the surveying and certification requirements for national accrediting organizations (AOs), such as The Joint Commission. 


The Proposed Rules called for greater transparency in sharing the information resulting from surveying reports, the accreditation process, and acceptable plans of correction/created by CMS-approved AOs. AOs would be responsible for creating an online repository for the information to be accessible by the public.  


AHDI submitted comments in support of this proposal, while adding recommendations to give the public the option to filter information and access easily comprehensible summaries of AO inspection results. To read AHDI's comments in full, please click the link below.
