On February 22nd 2017 the Texas Association for Home Care and Hospice will kick off a series of online seminar trainings that will help your agency prepare for implementation of the largest re-write of the Conditions of Participation (CoPs) since the mid-90s. This recently published rule expands the standards for patient rights, care planning, and care coordination, and includes two new CoPs. These new standards require a quality assessment and performance improvement (QAPI) program as well as an infection control monitoring and prevention program. The revised HH CoPs go into effect July 13, 2017.
Because these new CoPs will begin being enforced July 13, 2017 and home health agencies must meet these new standards if they hope to participate in the Medicare program, the importance of compliance cannot be overstated. Agencies that fail to meet any of the HH CoPs are at risk of penalties from imposition of sanctions for marginal issues, to program termination for major infractions.
TAHC&H is here to give you the tools to ensure you are successful. We are offering a 7-part webinar series that will review, in detail, the changes to processes and policies that your agency must make to successfully comply with new regulation and avoid penalties.
