Contracts have become a recent hot topic with increased scrutiny by both the Joint Commission and CMS. Joint Commission has both a standard on contract managements and a contract services tracer. CMS recently issued a memo summarizing deficiencies received by hospitals and there were many related to contract management which will be discussed. This program will also discuss the standards for hospitals accredited by DNV-GL which are closely cross- walked to the CMS CoPs.
Hospitals have been asked why they have contracted with certain entities. Hospitals must also have a process to evaluate the contracted services. The evaluation needs to ensure compliance with the provisions contained in the contract regulations and standards with oversight from the Board. The bottom line is whether the hospital uses its own employees or contracts out the service with contracted employees, the hospital must still evaluate the service and ensure patients are still getting good quality of care. The board is responsible for oversight of contracted services and tips to ensure compliance will be discussed.
