CDPH Schedules Meeting for Stakeholder Feedback on Licensing, Certification
Independent report and recommendations to be discussed

The California Department of Public Health’s Center for Health Care Quality will hold a public stakeholders’ forum from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. Sept. 4 in the East End Complex Auditorium at 1500 Capitol Ave., Sacramento. According to the 2014 requirements established in SB 857, this is to be a semiannual meeting for all stakeholders interested in providing feedback on the Center for Health Care Quality’s Licensing and Certification Program.

In August 2013, the Licensing and Certification Program engaged Hubbert Systems Consulting to perform a comprehensive organizational assessment to determine the key challenges, issues and barriers inhibiting the fulfillment of state licensing and federal survey and certification requirements. The purpose of the assessment was to evaluate areas where Licensing and Certification is experiencing issues that contribute to less than optimal performance. This month, Hubbert Systems Consulting released its Initial Assessment and Gap Analysis Report, Remediation Recommendations and a PowerPoint summary of the study (attached). The findings and the recommendations will serve as a basis for discussion at the stakeholder meeting.
