5 set a date and work backwards
5. Set a Date and Work Backwards
  • Choose a date that you plan to submit the final survey and work backwards.
  • Set a timeline of when projects should be completed to fit your survey submission date.
  • Process will take an average of 6 months from start to finish.
  • FQHC’s have an advantage, with most of the standards already being met. Just need to find documentation.

6 complete the survey on paper as a team
6. Complete the Survey on Paper as a Team
  • Ask individuals to go through the survey on their own so that you don’t waste precious meeting time becoming familiar with the tool.
  • Go through as a team and establish baseline. This takes several hours and/or meeting times.
  • May focus on just ‘Must Pass’ elements or all elements.
  • Determine what level you plan to seek (Level 1, 2 or 3).
  • Determine multi-site or site-specific.
  • Note: Must have a physician at site to seek recognition. However, documentation can be from physician or mid-levels.

7 note weaknesses and deficiencies
7. Note Weaknesses and Deficiencies
  • Conduct Gap Analysis.
  • Team members assigned to find necessary documentation.
  • Team members assigned to revise policies.
  • New/revised policies must be in place for at least 3 months, prior to submission. Do this first!
  • Need an EHR in place for Level 2 and 3.
  • Must adopt and implement evidence-based guidelines for three clinically important conditions. CTMC had to add Depression as the third condition.

8 assign team to find documentation
8. Assign Team to Find Documentation
  • Minimize, minimize, minimize (our lesson learned).
  • Use one piece of documentation for more than one element. Must track and link on the survey tool. Looks intimidating, but easy once you dive in.
