Is your hospital or healthcare agency in compliance with the CMS Emergency Preparedness Ruling?
Last November, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) emergency preparedness requirements officially went into effect. The ruling’s purpose is to establish national emergency preparedness requirements for healthcare providers, ensuring adequate planning and coordination for all types of disasters. Medicare and Medicaid facilities must comply with the ruling to continue receiving reimbursements.
Many providers are still scrambling to meet these extensive regulations. They are looking for expert guidance along with fast, but comprehensive tools to make the planning process easier and more cost effective.
