Presenter: Diane Bradley, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, CPHQ, FACHE, FACHCA

Each year the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) promulgates new Conditions of Participation (CoP) for hospitals and current CoPs may be updated. The hospital revisions took effect April 1, 2015.

Part I of the 2-part webinar series will address the changes that were made to Appendix A and include:

  • Outpatient orders
  • Radiopharmaceuticals for nuclear medicine
  • Dietary

Join your colleagues for an interactive discussion that reviews some of the interpretative guidelines that are covered under each of the new CoPs.

HealthTech offers preparatory services and conducts mock surveys for hospitals that are anticipating a regulatory survey by any of the organizations that have deeming authority from CMS or respective State agencies. For further information, Diane Bradley can be reached at or via phone, 585-671-2212.
