4 Points to Keep in Mind on the CMS Emergency Preparedness Final Rule for ASCs

Submitted by GMcCalister on Thu, 09/22/2016 - 12:14

  1. The final rule exempts ASCs from providing information about occupancy. Hospitals will continue to report on inpatient occupancy.
  2. ASCs are required to create a process to cooperate with local, regional, state and federal efforts for emergency preparedness in their community.
  3. The final rule also requires ASCs to document efforts to connect with emergency preparedness officials and collaborate in planning efforts when available.
  4. After ASCA expressed concerns during the comment period CMS withdrew the requirement as ASCs can just cancel cases and transfer patients to a higher care level if needed.
