Webinars on February 25 and 27 to Announce CMP Funded Project Announcement

Nancy Leveille and Gayle Farman in Clinical & Quality


NYSHFA has been working on a committee with DOH and the NY Medical Director Association over the last couple years to help develop and implement the Medical Director and Attending Physician guidelines in New York State. DOH has developed an Education, Training and Technical Assistance (ETTA) project which will utilize Civil Money Penalty dollars to support the implementation of these guidelines in New York State SNFs. HANYS will be the main contractor in this project and NYSHFA is working closely with them. This project will be open only to 50 SNFs across the state. HANYS is conducting two, one-hour, free webinars next week on Tuesday, February 25th at 10:00 a.m. and a repeat session on Thursday, February 27th at 2:00 p.m. as an introduction to the project, with in-person sessions across the state to follow in March through April for those facility teams that have a strong interest in implementation.
