Corrective Action Plan Progress Reports
In the wake of 2011’s CMS review, Parkland committed to undertake a comprehensive program to improve quality and safety and our standard of care for patients. Parkland entered into a Systems Improvement Agreement with CMS in September 2011.
As a part of that agreement, we hired an Independent Consultant Expert (ICE) and implemented a plan of correction. Our consultant, Alvarez & Marsal, developed a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) not only requiring specific improvement, but also cultural change at Parkland.
Since 2012, we have completed and implemented 499 corrective action items.
