BOC Virtual Site Surveys
leverage technology to enable
facility owners to comply with
CMS requirements when an in-person visit is not possible, like the
present situation due to the pandemic. Virtual Site Surveys take
place in real-time, replicating standard procedures. An independent
surveyor coordinates an online ‘meeting’ to conduct a virtual
tour of the facility. If BOC awards accreditation, an additional
in-person site visit will follow as soon as it is safe and possible. BOC
virtual surveys also are eligible for BOC’s expedited service, which
guarantees a visit from a surveyor within 10 business days.
