Redsson FollowUpPro has the resources to help you get the job done.

The COVID-19 global pandemic has caused stress, hardship, and uncertainty upon everyone, but especially for frontline providers.

For this reason, The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has granted an extension of the Commission on Cancer (CoC)’s standard three-year verification to a four-year verification for hospitals that participate in one or more of the ACS verification/accreditation programs and are in good standing. In addition to this:

  • The ACS will not penalize for standards that cannot be met during this unprecedented time
  • If you are currently working to resolve a deficiency/deficiencies you will receive a 6-month extension to the original deficiency resolution due date

If you have more questions on cancer program postponements we encourage you to read through the ACS FAQ page.

We understand that resources have become stretched thin, which is why we want to lend our support.

The patient follow-up process is critical. No matter if you are currently accredited or not, adding Redsson FollowUpPro as a natural extension of your team will aide in:

  • Finding more lost patients quickly and efficiently
  • Eliminating manual work and increasing productivity
  • Importing updated information directly back into your registry software

Redsson is also compatible with major registry software, eliminating headaches when it comes to data format requirements.
