We are a software vendor. Most of our home care customers will
be required to start submitting a list of clients served every month to a survey
vendor, who will do a mail or phone questionnaire to a random sample of the
clients using a “satisfaction” survey created by CMS. So far so good.
About 40 survey vendors in the
[st1:place w:st="on">[st1:country-region w:st="on">US[/st1:country-region][/st1:place] have been approved to do this
work. They have taken a somewhat vague CMS spec for data to be submitted by home
health agencies, and each of them has developed their own file spec for the
report we have to build.
What steps need to be taken to make sure when new requirements come out regarding EHRs, that there is consensus and agreement about the file format requirements?
