Self-Assessment Update

September 14, 2017

Except for some difficulty with printing the PDFs created by the software, the self-assessment tool seems to be working as designed.  Kudos to the DMAS staff for their working with the provider community to develop a tool that is as “user friendly” as possible! We did confirm yesterday that the due date will be 20 October and that the first review will be of the Part 1 of each filing.  That should take 4 to 5 months and feedback will be sent to each provider; subsequently the specific site data (Parts 2 and 3) will be reviewed. There is, at this point, no specific detail on the process for adding or removing sites.  We will, we’re sure, be part of the discussions to ensure that the protocols developed are ones that we can manage.
