Facility Licensure, Certification and Accreditation

Stack of Paper Our consultants have taken their previous facilities through successful surveys and several of them are surveyors themselves. It is no secret the outcomes of these surveys effect everything from managed care contracts to the ability for expansion. Whether you are working on your initial Certificate of Need (CON), or going through Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Centers (AAAHC), one of our experts can direct your staff through the maze.

For those centers in a start up mode our research at the state and local level can be used to assist in CON, Medicare certification and later to facilitate accreditation with either the AAAASF,  AAAHC, HFAP or The Joint Commission (TJC). HIPAA compliance threads throughout our programs. Each state establishes certain criteria and requirements for licensure so it is critical that the consultant you choose be familiar with your area. Additionally architectural considerations maybe impacted at your state level as well as clinical staffing so early discovery is crucial. Many centers choose a consultant for this role not because they themselves cannot complete the forms but rather to expedite the process.

We are happy to assist pre-survey with a format and plan that will guide your staff. Should you find yourself in a situation post-survey needing a corrective action plan with or without implementation we are here for that as well. Several states lately have focused on very specific areas such as infection control and patient consents, that we have current plans in design.

At the local level, many states are now doing unannounced visits that can result in minimal correction through complete shut down. To avoid loss of business operations for extended time, plan ahead. Excellentia provides surveys for an onsite review of your operations.
