Product Description

Don’t Risk Deficiency Citations—Put the New Rules into Practice

For the first time in decades, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updated the home health Conditions of Participation (CoP). Now that the final interpretive guidelines are out, agencies like yours are looking for clear direction. After all, surveyors are already using the new guidelines. You’d better be too!

Orient yourself by attending this information-packed webinar, presented by home health and hospice expert Sharon Litwin. You’ll gain a firm understanding of the guidelines and what they mean for your agency’s chances while undergoing a survey. You’ll also get a clear-eyed look at the updated CoP and your agency’s obligations.

The reality is that your agency can face serious deficiencies if you aren’t properly following the new guidelines. Litwin will help you avoid that fate by explaining the compliance standards for your policies and practices, staff training, clinical documentation, and quality management metrics (QAPI).

This instructive session will include real-world home health survey examples and present lessons learned so that you can avoid common missteps. You’ll walk away with the tools and knowledge to ensure your agency is in full compliance with home health CoP and the final guidelines.
