Registry Partners’ Vice President of Accreditation Services, Crystal McDaniel, CTR and Director of Business Development Linda Reimers- BS, RHIA, CTR attended the Annual Commission on Cancer Training for Surveyors and Consultants on November 12th and 13th. Thankfully it didn’t snow this year but the winds were howling once again! The opportunity to network and learn from each other is always a worthwhile opportunity. Presentations were made by surveyors as well as Commission on Cancer staff. The question and answer opportunities provide the best feedback for Consultants to share with their hospitals. Crystal and Linda are two of the 31 total CoC- Trained Consultants. This provides our clients with the unique opportunity for first hand knowledge and understanding of the surveyor’s approach to the 2016 surveys.
