    I am in the process of editing our policy for delinquent physicians.
    What is your monthly delinquency rate?
    Do you think 7% is an achievable goal?

    Thanks,

    We had a CMS Validation Survey less than a year ago and we were cited for having two delinquent medical records.  According to CMS - zero tolerance for any delinquent records.  This is one of those instances where CMS and TJC are not on the same page.

    Hello,

     

    Yes it is. Ours is between 2-4%.

     

    Thanks,
