Requirements of Participation Update

Lisa Volk and Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

NYSHFA staff have continued to implement our Requirements of Participation (RoP) workplan to help members with the CMS’ new requirements based on the RoP’s 3 Phases. Our goal is to provide or link you to educational opportunities on specific topics, share new resources, and consolidate information in one place on our website for easy access. The workplan has been updated as we head into the RoP Phase 2 and have set up links to the upcoming education on Facility Assessments, QAPI Plans, AHCA ‘s New Online Infection Prevention program, NYSHFA/NYSCAL Emergency Preparation Conference and a certified Wound Care Program. Please see attached workplan and visit our website at and click on the Be Aware: CMS Requirements of Participation ICON on the front page.

In addition to our workplan, there are many links to current resources and past educational resource slides and handouts for your viewing. Also to note, NYSHFA is currently in discussions with DOH to provide regional meetings this fall on the Life Safety requirements and online webinars on the new Survey Process. NYSHFA will announce these once they are confirmed. If you have any questions/comments, please contact Lisa Volk or Nancy Leveille.
