DQA Encourages Hospitals to Update Contact Information and Subscribe to Division’s Email Lists
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ Division of Quality Assurance (DQA) often sends notices, memos and updates to hospitals and other DQA-regulated facilities via the email address for the contact person provided to DQA by the regulated facility. In order to avoid missing key information and compliance dates from the regulatory body, DQA is stressing the importance of notifying DQA when the name, email address or postal address changes for the contact person.
For example, at the end of February, DQA-regulated facilities received a notice and instructions for submitting the four-year renewal of licensee background check information, which was due May 3, 2021. Hospitals that have not provided the required information will receive a mailed notice. In August, hospitals will receive notice of the required annual hospital report and bed fee, which will be due in October.
In addition to the hospital contact person, DQA invites hospital staff and others to join its email lists to receive notices, memos and updates by signing up for its subscription email service
