CMS-Approved Accrediting Organizations
The Centers for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have approved several organizations for evaluating healthcare facilities for accreditation by CMS. Our team can help you to prepare for the accreditation survey as performed by the following organizations:
- Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP)
- Center for Improvement in Healthcare Quality (CIHQ)
- Community Healthcare Accreditation Program (CHAP)
- DNV GL Healthcare (DNV)
- Institute for Medical Quality (IMV)
- The Joint Commission (TJC)
- Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC)
Our team will inspect your facility, including paperwork, plans, equipment and building attributes. We will then provide you with actionable recommendations that will help you to prepare for the survey by healthcare accreditation agencies.
Life Safety™ Inspection Organizations
In most cases, your local fire department, state fire marshal or CMS itself will determine whether your building complies with all regulations and best practices for Life Safety™ activities. Healthcare Life Safety Services has the knowledge and expertise of building codes and fire safety standards to ensure that your buildings are ready for your accreditation survey and that you are in compliance with all state, federal and local codes related to life safety in our area.
Environment of Care™ Inspection Agencies
We also offer inspections and recommendations regarding Environment of Care™ standards and regulations. These inspections and evaluations are usually performed by your state or local health department, by CMS or by DNV. We have the knowledge needed to provide an accurate listing of all the items to be corrected before your evaluation or audit begins.
Emergency Management Inspection Organizations
Emergency management activities are usually overseen by the healthcare accreditation agencies approved by CMS or by CMS itself. These agencies include CHAP, CIHQ, DNV, IMQ, TJS and HFAP. At Healthcare Life Safety Services, we have a direct understanding of the standards and evaluation methods used by these healthcare accreditation agencies and will provide you with the best feedback for your needs.
