In 2010 and 2011, a series of 17 conference calls were held with network facilities. The Standards Review Calls were for facilities to share their experiences with CAH CoPs. Each call tackled a set or CoPs and those tags are noted.
Among the stated priorities of the PIN is the objective to support critical access hospitals in their efforts to meet certain Conditions of Participation (COP) which a facility must comply with in order to participate in federal and state Medicare and Medicaid programs.
The CoP which the PIN focuses on supporting include facility agreements, medical staff credentialing and peer review activities, policies and procedures for clinical care delivery, and the implementation of an organization-wide, effective quality assurance and program. The resources in this section support PIN members in their efforts to comply with these CoP.
