As you know, CMS announced on December 20, 2013 that they were proceeding with full implementation of the new transplant Focused QAPI ("F-QAPI") CoP Site Surveys, including citations and termination from the Medicare program, for condition-level deficiencies. The full announcement from CMS can be found online at: http://go.cms.gov/19nYYjG
Guidry & East is pleased to announce our new F-QAPI Readiness Assessment service aimed at helping our clients navigate this new regulatory requirement. Guidry & East will provide clients with an on-site in-depth review of your transplant QAPI process to not only assess your current status but also provide written recommendations to help you improve this critical aspect of your program. Guidry & East F-QAPI readiness staff includes consultants who have previously worked as CMS CoP contract surveyors and are familiar with this new requirement.
There is limited availability each month for this service, so we encourage you to contact Jim Guidry directly to discuss this opportunity soon. Do not forget to check the SRTR website for the confidential release of center-specific data that occurred on Monday, March 3, 2014.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
