New FTCA Site Visit Protocol

April 3, 2019

On January 15, 2019, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) published the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) Health Center Site Visit Protocol. You can find the protocol on HRSA’s website here.

The FTCA Site Visit process is intended to be an objective process for HRSA to verify the implementation of FTCA deeming requirements. This new protocol describes the site visit’s purpose, structure, process and report. It also includes materials that health centers can utilize to prepare for a site visit, including:

  • A Document Review Checklist (documents the site visit team will be reviewing before and during the site visit)
  • A sample site visit agenda
  • A sample site visit report
  • Hyperlinks to a roster of related tools and resources available through ECRI Clinical Risk Management

This webinar will provide an overview of the major changes and emerging risk areas related to FTCA program compliance.

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
