Translating the CMS COVID-19 Emergency Declaration Waiver for HTM Leaders

This presentation should help HTM teams to:

  • Evaluate the Physical Environment section, including Inspection, Testing and Maintenance (ITM)
  • Gain ideas on how to document your PM schedules and prepare for post-COVID-19 surveying
  • Understand the impact of Telemedicine on HTM, and the waiver's language as it applies to the management of devices, equipment and data
  • Review CMS's intent on providing guidance around streamlining processes and how to maximize resources with limited staffing
