All facilities accredited by TJC, AOA, CIHQ, and DNV Healthcare must adhere to the CMS CoPs. This 525-page manual contains interpretive guidelines, policies, procedures, and standards that must be followed for all providers treating patients in hospitals or any hospital-owned departments.
Our Relias Certified CMS Professional Program will guide attendees through the entire CMS Hospital CoP manual and highlight major changes that impact hospitals. The program is divided into five parts with each part accompanied by an exam.
There have been a record-breaking number of surveys and certification memos issued over the past year. Learn how to keep your hospital in compliance by completing the program or attending individual webinars that are applicable to your job function. You can use the on-demand recording when onboarding new hires!
