Please note that as of January 1, 2018, this service line is offered exclusively under INCompliance, an affiliate of QMCG. 

State regulations for acute care services can change without providers having any knowledge of or input on the change. We can monitor regulations, advise you on proposed changes and provide public comment where appropriate. We can help ensure that your interests are addressed and that your service remains compliant. Our experience can help ensure that your service is in compliance. In addition, we can prepare your request for a waiver or variance and work with the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) to address specific concerns, such as:

Health Care Services/Quality Rules

Our Director of Regulatory Services has worked with experts to develop rules for the Health Care Services (HCS) program. She developed and implemented the HCS program for the ODH and was the program’s administrator from its inception in 1997 through 2009. We can assist with the following:

  • Initiating a new health care service
  • Discontinuing an existing health care service
  • Changing the scope of service or service level designation
  • Preparing waiver and variance request for requirements not met or met in an alternative manner
  • Conducting mock survey to evaluate compliance

Hospital Registration

Our director of regulatory services has 28 years of involvement with hospital registration as a program administrator with the ODH. Additionally, our director has provided consultation to the ODH regarding registration policy and rules and can help ensure that your registration is accurate. If you are having registration issues, we can work with the ODH to resolve problems and correct mistakes.
