RESNET PROPOSES AMENDMENT OF CHAPTER 9 TO REVISE CERTAIN QUALITY ASSURANCE REQUIREMENTS RESNET Staff proposed the changes to the current procedures for the following reasons: Section 904.4.2.4 – Quality assurance reviews of providers by RESNET staff in 2013 found that only requiring the Quality Assurance Designee only have to conduct field reviews on raters is too long. Too many providers find themselves in trouble when they wait until the end of the year to conduct their reviews. This should be on a quarterly basis. Section 904.4.2.9 – Provides more clarification to meet the intent of the section. Section 904.5.2.2 – Clarifies that the Quality Assurance Designee must immediately inform RESNET in a case where a significant non-compliance by a Provider occurs. This will ensure that the issue is addressed as soon as possible. Section 9188.8.131.52 – This provides needed clarification that there shall be no extensions granted for administrative probation Section 9184.108.40.206.7 – Clarifies the section only applies to minor issues Section 9220.127.116.11.6 – Adds the failure to complete required field or file QA for a cause for Disciplinary Compliance Probation This proposed amendment is undergoing the RESNET standard amendment public review and comment process.
