IMPORTANT UPDATE: It has been made official that accreditation will be required for New Jersey Health Care Service Firms (HCSF) to renew their license in July 2019, as seen in the May 2018 New Jersey Register. IF YOU WISH TO OBTAIN MORE DETAILS ON THIS PROPOSAL, PLEASE CONTACT OUR OFFICE.
Did you know that in August 2014, when Governor Christie signed legislation (P.L.2014, c.29) it meant that all New Jersey Health Care Service Firms (HCSF) will be required to obtain accreditation with a state recognized accrediting body to be able to continue providing home care services in the State? If you did, you might be wondering about the status of this legislation, and how your firm may be affected.
Executive Professional Consulting Services is a New Jersey based firm that specializes in all aspects of the Health Care industry; we can assist companies providing private duty nursing, non-medical and personal care services or companion care with navigating the challenges of the accreditation process in conjunction with New Jersey state requirements. Our executive consultant background includes over 30 years in compliance, quality assurance and audit functions with major corporations and over 9 years of experience in New Jersey home and health care services, as well as consultant certification and training from the accreditation organizations (AOs).
Our firm will provide:
• As little or as much guidance as you need to obtain and maintain accreditation
• Expertise as to the requirements for each AO and state requirements
• Proper organization and long-term planning
• Reference material to help with the process
• On-going support
• Liaison between AOs and clients
There are approximately 1000 HCSFs in New Jersey that will need accreditation and only 5 approved AOs; once the new regulations go into effect, agencies that have not started the process will be rushing to get accredited before the deadline. Under normal circumstances, the complex accreditation process can take several months and with a dramatic increase in volume, it is likely to slow things down, causing the process to take significantly longer than it would now. When that happens, HCSFs that wait too long to get started could risk failing to get through the process in time to renew their licenses.
Don’t put your business at risk! Accreditation is going to happen, so get ahead of it by starting today. This will allow you to go through the process at your own pace and avoid the rush, putting your business in the best position to succeed.
If your agency is already accredited, Executive Professional Consulting Services offers a range of services that can meet your agency’s needs as well; including assistance with accreditation renewal, mock surveys, consultant retainer services and more.
