A lot! Let’s put it this way… When “HME Accreditation Simplified!™” was first being created the author spent several hundred hours completely dedicated to carefully translating each industry standard into a specific procedure to follow or a special tool to use for facilitating how they should each be properly implemented to pass the survey process… and he’s an industry expert who has spent years helping to write the actual industry standards in the first place!
Doing yourself what he has already done for you is not recommended, unless you have employees you can assign to compile the mountain of needed information for you and are also standards experts. Even if you could hire an expert to compile this same information for you, you would end up having to pay many thousands of dollars to come even close to what is already contained in “HME Accreditation Simplified!™”.
Therefore, it simply is not practical for most HME companies to attempt to duplicate these efforts and try to interpret on their own how to implement the accreditation standards when it has already been done for you. Leveraging his efforts by using “HME Accreditation Simplified!™” is the least expensive way to capitalize on this special knowledge to assure that you will complete your accreditation survey without complication or frustration.
“HME Accreditation Simplified!™” will reduce or even eliminate the need for consultant services. Following “HME Accreditation Simplified!™” will give you everything you need to be ready for your survey. However, after carefully using all of the tools we have provided, if you still would like to get consulting to provide extra help, it is unlikely that you would need more than a day or two of consulting time as a result.
“HME Accreditation Simplified!™” comes with a free 30-minute phone call with one of my accreditation experts to assure you have a successful start with implementing your manual correctly.
