APIC Provides Free Endoscopy Webinar for ASCA Members

More than two years after Medicare's revised Conditions for Coverage (CfC) for ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) went into effect, some endoscopy ASCs still have questions about the best ways to comply with the new infection control standards.

Join the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) for "Meeting CMS Requirements for Coverage on Infection Control at Ambulatory Endoscopy Centers," an hour-long webinar on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 1 pm. Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA) members can register for free.

Laura Strohmeyer, AmSurg regional director of GI clinical services division III, will review the applicable CMS CfC infection control standards, discuss common deficiencies cited,a nd identify strategies that can be used to promote a successful CMS survey.
