CMS will implement a new survey process starting in November 2017, which means F-Tags as we know them now are going away.
Beginning Nov. 28, 2017, all states will see a different kind of survey, a new computer-based process designed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of both Traditional and QIS surveys. This free on-demand webinar will provide you with details of the new survey process and what your facility should do to prepare.
On Oct. 12, SimpleLTC and Briggs Healthcare offered a free webinar to unveil the details of the new survey process and what your facility should do now to prepare. With nearly 2,000 registered, this was one of our most popular training events ever. Now we’re making it available on our site so you can watch the webinar recording on-demand and access the slides and handouts.
