Great news for health and human services organizations aiming to become CARF accredited, PowderHorn Consulting delivers on-site consultation regarding CARF standards interpretation and implementation.

Jamesburg, USA – March 19, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ —

Preparing for a Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities can be a challenging process for all healthcare providers. At a minimum, a facility familiarizes itself with current standards, examine current processes, policies and procedures relative to the standards and prepare to improve any areas that are not currently in compliance. To help these organizations, PowderHorn Consulting with over 150 years of behavioral health & development disability experience, offers on-site mock survey.

“Mock survey is a vital tool for measuring performance, providing feedback and implementing improvements prior to undergoing the actual joint commission survey. With the results, the organization can make adaptations to be more prepared for a successful CARF accreditation survey,” explains Tom Sefcik, Managing Principal for PowderHorn Consulting and former CARF surveyor with 57 CARF surveys conducted.

During mock survey, the highly trained CARF consultants from PowderHorn Consulting evaluate the organization’s current level of compliance with the specific CARF standards that are applicable to the organization. This assessment provides the foundation for developing a Customized Survey Preparation Plan for CARF survey readiness. The consultants conduct a survey similar to the actual process, assisting the organization in familiarization of the accreditation survey process to obtain the best outcome.

Moreover, a representative will spend two days reviewing an organization’s current policies and procedures, operating methods, and matching them to current CARF accreditation standards. After the survey, PowderHorn Consulting will give the organization a detailed report outlining strengths and areas of improvement to prepare them for an accreditation site visit. “Our mock survey provides a critical opportunity for a staff to experience the CARF survey process and gain confidence in their survey presentation skills. The mock survey simulates the actual schedule of an upcoming CARF Survey and includes all of the standard CARF survey interviews and numerous tracers,” adds Tom.

The company’s management team is highly respected by its clients. Virtually everyone who contacted PowderHorn for mock survey spoke highly of the team’s quality, thoroughness and its success building a healthy and strong culture that directly impacts the quality of service.

“Our consultants are up to date on the most current CARF Survey techniques and can coach managers and staff on how to handle challenging survey issues. On-site and off-site follow-up consultations are available from PowderHorn Consulting for assistance in implementing corrective actions.”
