Structural Compliance Reviews
Certified PASSPORT and Assisted Living Waiver providers are required by ODA to undergo an annual Structural Compliance Review (SCR). Direction Home Akron Canton has the authority to visit your office or facility unannounced and conduct SCRs. Generally, we send out notices of the times and dates of upcoming visits.
As a certified provider, you are obligated to undergo an SCR regardless of whether or not you’re currently serving any waiver consumers. During this visit, a Quality Improvement (QI) staff member will review your agency's policies, procedures, personnel records, patient/client/resident records, and any other relevant documentation to verify your compliance. We must review a minimum of 10 percent of consumer records. Direction Home Akron Canton has the authority to review all records relevant to participation in the waiver programs. SCR visits typically take 2-4 hours. Please contact the appropriate QI staff member with any questions (see below).
