Christine Carrington, our consultant, was very knowledgeable, straightforward, responsive and equipped with answers and resources.

Christine Gregory, Owner of Coast Medical Service, shared the hesitation to apply for JCHCSS Certification process felt by so many colleagues in the industry. “I had been resistant for years to apply for JCHCSS Certification process. I thought it would be an overly complicated process and would involve standards that went beyond what a boutique agency could comply with,” explained Gregory. “I was referred to Chris Carrington at Prophecy and she organized the compliance issues into a process that was methodical and obtainable. If we were missing specific documents or lacked requisite clauses in our manuals, she had what was needed to steer us into compliance. Chris was immediately responsive to our questions and needs. She submitted mock questions that the JC reviewer might ask which helped us organize our thoughts and responses. We passed immediately after the full day review and though Coast worked hard to fulfill the requirements, Chris was integral element in reaching our goal.”
