Review process: The review is now an interactive, multi-meeting process rather than a single submission. It is now comprised of three virtual reviews over 12 months. Generally, the first virtual meeting is to plan out the process together, the second meeting to start to review and validate and provide feedback, and third to continue to review and validate and discuss alternatives to those that could not be validated.
Changes: Under 2017 standards there is only one level of recognition, compared to three levels previously. New reporting platform called Q-Pass, and if a practice is working with a Certified Content Expert (CCE) then the CCE can access the system on behalf of the practice. Learn about accessing Q-Pass here.
Timeframe: Plan for 3 to 12 months to implement transformation processes. Most policies and procedures must be in place for 3 months in order to be considered compliant, needs to be completed in 12 months. Must be reviewed annually as opposed to three-year recognition cycle.
