As noted in July, the Department of Health (DOH) is proceeding with rulemaking for elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) Certificate of Need regulations. As a result of rulemaking petitions, DOH is considering reducing institutional and individual volume standards for safe and effective elective PCI.
Following work by a PCI data subcommittee, the rules workgroup will meet from 1-2:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 11 at the Department of Health’s Town Center 2 Building, Room 158, 111 Israel Road SE, Tumwater. The agenda, draft rules, data request, data report and analysis, and meeting summary are available for review prior to the meeting. (Zosia Stanley)
