G4S Corporate Risk Services is offering all-hazards security risk assessments, along with emergency plans, training and rills to help healthcare organizations comply with the CMS Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers.
The Emergency Preparedness Rule affects 17 types of providers and suppliers eligible for participation in Medicare, and those affected must comply by November 15, 2017.
If they fail to comply, they risk losing their Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements from CMS.
The CMS Final Rule requires compliance and implementation of regulations that include security risk assessments, active shooter risk, mass casualty communication solutions, training and drills to address local terrorism risk and workplace violence.
The all-hazards security risk assessments have been designed to meet Final Rule requirements and produce recommendations that can be incorporated into emergency plans as well as policies and procedures.
"G4S is proud to be able to deliver these compliance-based, cutting edge security risk assessments that specifically meet the CMS Final Rule Emergency Preparedness compliance requirements, and have been developed to ensure that healthcare organizations will be able to demonstrate compliance with the new CMS Rule," said Robert Dodge, executive vice president of G4S Corporate Risk Services.
