The Modernization of Medicare Home Health: CoPs and Survey Readiness

Recently updated Conditions of Participation for Medicare and Medicaid Home Health Agencies go into effect January 2018. Can your home health agency confidently affirm it will be ready for survey under these new regulatory requirements? Are your staff members properly trained on updated policies and processes related to these changes? If not, this intensive is designed to give you needed knowledge to affirm your current processes and set priorities to ensure success. 

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issued newly updated CoP regulations on January 13, 2017 with a subsequent compliance date of January 13, 2018.  Included in the new regulations are enhanced requirements for patient rights, changes to the skilled professional and home health aide services and supervision, sweeping change of the functions of care planning and coordination of care services, an overhaul of agency QAPI and infection control, and the addition of emergency preparedness as a condition of participation. These comprehensive changes will directly affect the entire agency’s day to day function. Agencies who are not prepared face stiff penalties, including exclusion from participation in Medicare and Medicaid funded programs. This workshop recording will assist in validating your current processes and better prepare you to maintain and enhance compliance.
