The Compliance Team expands patient satisfaction service
SPRING HOUSE, Pa. – The Compliance Team has expanded enrollment in its web-based patient satisfaction reporting and benchmarking service to all DMEPOS providers, whether they’re accredited by The Compliance Team or another Medicare-approved organization. “Given Medicare’s and managed care’s emphasis on pay-for-performance and mandates for providers to prove their quality claims, we believe the time is right to expand our service,” stated Sandra Canally, founder and president, in a press release. The Compliance Team has been requiring the submission of patient satisfaction surveys on a quarterly basis since 1998, making its database the oldest and largest of its kind, the company stated in the release. To date, The Compliance Team has aggregated and benchmarked more than 1.3 million patient satisfaction surveys, garnering 10 million standardized data points from providers in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Compliance Team is charging an introductory fee of $249 per year for the first location for providers that are not accredited by the company.
