Product Description

Product Description

Are you a hospital using Joint Commission accreditation for deemed status with the US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid? If so, are you ready for a CMS survey—every day, at any time? According to federal policy, for 60 days after a Joint Commission survey, any organization that uses accreditation for deemed status is at risk for a validation survey from the US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). In fact, CMS may elect, at any time, to conduct its own additional evaluation of a hospital with deemed status through a complaint or potential immediate jeopardy investigation. When CMS or the Department of Health arrives at your facility, you need to be prepared.
The 2024 Joint Commission and CMS Crosswalk: Comparing Hospital Standards and CoPs offers easy access to the full—and current as of January 1, 2024—language of the Medicare hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and demonstrates their equivalency with the Joint Commission’s hospital standards. A reverse crosswalk, listing Joint Commission requirements with equivalent CoP numbers, shows equivalencies in the opposite direction. This allows staff to easily see how the two sets of requirements relate to each other, whether they are more familiar with the Medicare CoPs or the Joint Commission standards. Regulatory staff and accreditation managers can use the crosswalks in this guide to identify how your organization's policies, procedures, and practices support one or more Joint Commission standards and demonstrate compliance with equivalent CMS regulations—or identify gaps. 
Hospitals and psychiatric hospitals preparing for a deemed status survey from The Joint Commission need resources to ensure they are compliant with both sets of requirements and are ready for survey. Although accredited hospitals are able to access two of the four crosswalks in this book on E-dition®, this guide goes a step further, providing the reverse crosswalks as well as critical information about CMS and deemed status. Plus, the book's sidebars and tables provide additional information on Joint Commission accreditation for deemed status, CMS-related updates, and how both organizations survey for compliance.
