Joint Commission and CMS Accreditation Consulting Service Testimonials
We have helped more than 380 behavioral healthcare organizations nationwide achieve successful Joint Commission and CMS survey and accreditation results.
Our Barrins & Associates consultant had a thoughtful and direct style of communication that made hearing her findings more palatable and immediately motivated us into action.
Without her expert guidance, we would not be nearly as far along in this process. As a result, we are confident our services will be greatly improved in the long run.
Barrins & Associates conducted an outstanding mock survey for us.
