National expert Diana Scott, Sr. Director, Vizient, will join us to present CHA’s annual full-day program outlining The Joint Commission’s new standards and national patient safety goals for 2017 and challenges from 2016 with strategies for compliance.  Ms. Scott will also review survey process changes, patient safety alerts and tips, and CMS focus areas, as well as best practices for a successful survey. 

CHA is also pleased to have Mark Crafton, Executive Director of Communications and External Relations at The Joint Commission (TJC), and Ann Scott Blouin, Executive Vice President of Customer Relations at TJC, join us for the program.  Their presentations will include an overview of the new process for surveyors to determine the severity of non-compliance with all accreditation and certification requirements, and a new report format that will more clearly illustrate priority issues impacting patient safety.  Attendees will also receive information on compliance data for challenging accreditation standards in Connecticut hospitals.  Finally, presenters will share information on new standards and National Patient Safety Goals, including topics under consideration for standards/NPSGs development in 2018.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.  Registration and breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m.
