Thank you for using Clearpol. Your support has been invaluable to us and we truly appreciate it. We launched Clearpol two years ago and thousands of users like you have joined us in our mission to simplify healthcare compliance. During the pandemic, we put Clearpol out for free as our way of helping, so you could focus on taking care of your residents.
As we move forward, we are determined to empower you with cutting-edge AI-enabled tools that will make managing compliance effortless. To bring this vision to life we've partnered
with UC Berkeley, a leader in public health and AI research. We will also launch a PRO subscription starting March 1st to ensure the sustainability of Clearpol and to continuously improve the platform for all users.
After March 1st, many existing, new, and future features will require a PRO subscription.
As a token of appreciation, we will be offering early adopters, students, and other special users
the opportunity to be grandfathered in at an incredibly steep discount. Look out for future communications if you fall into that category.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support. We look forward to serving you in the future.
Clearpol's Opinion of this Guidance as of 10/26/2022
Updated guidance for the Interim Final Rule – Medicare and Medicaid Programs; Omnibus COVID-19 Health Care Staff Vaccine Immunization Requirements. It provides survey procedures for assessing and maintaining compliance. It replaces QSO 22-07-ALL. It has revised interpretive guidance in attachment A. CMS-20054 IPC & Immunization has been revised. No revised AFL yet.
CMS expects all providers’ and suppliers’ staff to have received the appropriate number of doses of the primary vaccine series unless exempted as required by law, or delayed as recommended by CDC. Facility staff vaccination rates under 100% of unexcepted staff constitute noncompliance under the rule. Non-compliance does not necessarily lead to termination, and facilities will generally be given opportunities to return to compliance. For example, a facility that is noncompliant and has implemented a plan to achieve a 100% staff vaccination rate would not be subject to an enforcement action. Consistent with CMS’s existing enforcement processes, this guidance will help surveyors determine the severity of a noncompliance deficiency finding at a facility when assigning a citation level.
CDC NHSN Data Verification: Surveyors have the discretion to verify the accuracy of NHSN data on surveys based on a complaint report or if concerns are identified. We note that CMS and CDC conduct quality checks of facility NHSN data submissions each week in an effort to identify trends or indicators of data reporting issues. Procedures for conducting this review may be found in the Surveyor Resources folder and LTCSP procedure guide.
