At the end of May, CMS released its latest revisions to the Conditions of Participation (CoP) for hospitals and ­critical access hospitals (CAH).

This rule reflects CMS' commitment to the ­general principles of the President's Executive Order 13563, ­released January 18, 2011, entitled "Improving ­Regulation and Regulatory Review."
