Preparing for the New Requirements of Participation

On November 22, 2016 by Heidi Simpson

Get your team prepared for the implementation of the new Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Requirements of Participation for care centers. Register today for one of our five regional workshops

Participants of the first session gave rave reviews. “The best day of learning,” commented one attendee. Another said, “The materials and timeline/toolkit I received will be extremely helpful for my team.” 

The workshop is most effective and beneficial if attended by a team that includes administrators, nursing directors, MDS coordinators and social workers. The new requirements have many different elements that impact multiple teams in your organization, and they will need time to learn what is expected and think through the best process to get ready.
