Welcome to the new standard for Multi-Disciplinary Practice models in New Jersey. Let us introduce you to the concept of becoming Licensed as an Ambulatory Care Facility (ACF) for Primary Care. The License process and preparation involved can be arduous, but the benefits and security afforded by Licensure are well worth the commitment.
During a facility tour, owners are introduced to the ACF Licensing process. This meeting typically lasts 1 hour and will not interfere with the activities of staff or privacy of patients. The facility tour reveals a great deal to our team. Areas of non-compliance are almost immediately identified and plans to achieve compliance are discussed in detail. Having a recent set of facility plans for our team to review is very helpful to this process.
Upon reviewing the facility layout, our team is able to provide a Licensing assessment. An important aspect of this assessment is determining the current level of the facilities’ physical plant compliance. Through the review of the facility and the current architectural plans (if available), our team can identify areas of non-compliance that need to be remedied. While some facilities may require various levels of renovation to conform to the physical plant requirements, others may simply require minor changes to room designations and policy conditions to conform. After the assessment process, our group is able to provide valuable insight for the next steps toward Licensure.
The legal aspect of the Licensing process is an important one. If you are not represented by legal counsel, our team can make an introduction to our trusted healthcare attorney and Board Member, Mohamed Nabulsi, Esq. If you already retain a healthcare attorney, we will gladly work with them to ensure your current corporate structure is sound.
Retention of Services
Once retained, we work directly with you (and your staff) to ensure compliance in all areas as specified in N.J.A.C Title 8 Chapter 43A, Standards for Licensure of Ambulatory Care Facilities. Due to the complexities of the licensing standards, not all projects require the same level of service. Some projects are more involved from one or more professional perspectives. Please contact us to arrange for a consultation so we may provide you with a more clear understanding of our services and this process.
