|Maintaining a State of Rediness for your Next OSV|
HRSA has announced that as of October 1st 2018, noncompliance with any one of the 90+ elements in the new manual could result in progressive action and put future funding at risk under the “One, One & Done” rule. This reinforces the message that Health Centers must ensure compliance with all required elements, further demonstrated during the Operational Site Visits (OSVs). In this webinar, Dan and David will provide guidance and recommendations for OSV preparation and fostering a collaborative and comprehensive organizational approach that promotes continuous compliance.
