The home health industry is complex, highly regulated and constantly changing. It is under increased regulatory scrutiny, because survey deficiencies have increased significantly – even for providers with no prior issues. As a home care provider, you need to stay current with today’s regulatory climate so that you can identify and alleviate deficiencies before the surveyor arrives at your doorstep. So how do you do it?
In this information-packed audio conference, industry veteran Melissa Abbott will get you up to speed with the home health regulations, and show you how to stay in compliance. Abbott will walk you through the survey process, teach you how to perform a Mock Survey within your agency, and show you how to identify and address deficiencies before it’s too late. But that’s not all: Abbott will also teach you how to have an effective Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) program to successfully pass your surveys.

Plus, you’ll be more familiar with the survey process – and will be able to ensure that your agency is in compliance all year round.
