Submit a Facility Attestation

 

Each year, a facility must attest if they were not required to hire a CMS certified third party to conduct In-Center Hemodialysis Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers (ICH CAHPS)

These attestations must be submitted by a Facility Editor between January 1 and February 28 of each year. The Facility Editor can also submit the attestations on behalf of other Facility Personnel that have been added to the Facility Personnel tab of CROWNWeb.

Note:  
If the desired staff member has not been associated with this facility, they must be entered into CROWNWeb and associated with the desired facility (see: Add Facility Personnel.)

Attestations can be submitted by different individuals, and can be submitted at different times. All facility attestations for the calendar year must be completed by February 28.

To submit attestations for a facility:
