Ongoing Accreditation Readiness

Continuous Support Throughout Your Entire Survey Cycle

Providing a cycle of continuous support throughout a triennial survey period, the Ongoing Accreditation Readiness (OAR) process mirrors the survey timeline of accrediting organizations. Through assessment, education, assistance with action planning and follow-up visits, sustainable results can be achieved – assuring that your organization is “survey ready” every day.

A full Ongoing Accreditation Readiness packages cover the three-year survey cycle and include education, team assessment and onsite consultation every four to six months during the contract period. It can also be modified for one or two year plans.

This highly effective plan can be initiated at any time during your survey cycle and includes:

  • Training and education sessions are provided for leadership, medical staff and employees on key issues
  • Consultants provide unannounced mock surveys to test the organization´s response systems and develop agendas to address key areas of concern for the organization.
  • C&A works with you to integrate surveyable services or remove non-surveyable components from the organization´s application that do not meet organizational and functional integration criteria.
