Solutions Support

ALM Surgical Solutions provides customized, personalized support for your Ambulatory Surgery Center.  We offer collaborative services to assist your leadership team so that you can focus on quality efficient patient care.  Our proven processes and tools will give you the solutions you need to support your facility goals.

 

Accreditation and Regulatory Compliance Management

Our “AccrediReady” custom personalized project management tool will make sure that all components of accreditation and compliance requirements are met.  We provide these services for Survey Prep, on-going support, or as a compliance Check-up.

Services Include:

– Comprehensive, focused facility audits with review of operational functions, processes, documentation, medical records, credentialing and staff records for evaluation of compliance.
– Reviews based on current accreditation, CMS, Infection Control, and OSHA guidelines, as well as policies, documents and procedures.
– Personalized review with recommendations to achieve compliance.
– Customized project management software to support your compliance review process.
– Recommendations and findings provided in accreditation body and CMS format.
– Follow up support and tools based on any recommendations as needed.

Our team of Registered Nurses and Surgical Techs have a wealth of experience specializing in the ASC industry.  Our comprehensive services include development support, operations and leadership support, and are customizable to fit your needs to fit your budget, type and level of support that works best for your facility.   Our services include (in alpha order):

 

 

BLS, ACLS, and PALS training

We can train your staff on BLS, ACLS, and PALS.   Geographic and class size restrictions apply.

 

 

Credentialing

Can’t find time to maintain those credentialing files appropriately?  Let us help.  We’ll make sure they are organized, up to date, and contain all the necessary documents.

 

One time audit:

We will review your credentialing files to verify compliance for a one-time fee. Our audit includes file review, organization, process recommendation, and a needed document list.

Monthly maintenance:

If you prefer, we can maintain your files remotely for a nominal monthly rate. We’ll work with your facility in keeping all the documents current, and have the files prepared and ready for the accreditation/re-accreditation process through your Governing Board. We’ll alert you as new documents are needed, or we will get them for you – your choice. The best part is that it will cost less that the time a staff member is needed.

 

Compliance Tracking

Want to make sure that your facility has all the policies and processes in place and updated to be in compliance with your regulatory and accreditation standards and guidelines? We can help!

Our solutions clients have access to their Compliance Calendar, which provides alerts when licenses,  training, and documents expire.
