Single site survey.
(a) The Department, in consultation with the council, shall by rule
establish a uniform site survey instrument taking into
account national accreditation standards and State requirements. The
uniform site survey instrument
shall include all the site survey data requested by health care
entities and health care plans.
(b) No later than July 1, 2002, the Department, in
the council, shall publish, in rule, the variable or variables for completing
single site survey. To the extent possible, the single site survey shall be
established to ensure that all health care professionals in a group or at a
site are reviewed during the same time period.
(c) Beginning January 1, 2003, health care entities and
health care plans
shall implement the single site survey, if a site
survey is required by any of the health care professional's health
care entities or health care plans. The site survey shall be completed using
the uniform site survey instrument.
(d) The uniform site survey instrument shall be used when a health care
professional seeks initial credentialing by a health care entity
or health care plan, when a health care professional's credentials data
change substantively, or when a health care plan or health care entity requires
a site survey as a result of patient or quality assurance issues, if a site
survey is required by the health care entity or
health care plan.
(e) Nothing in this Section prohibits health care entities and health care
plans from choosing the independent party to conduct the
single site survey.
