Hospitals are as responsible for a patient’s discharge experience as they are for their stay. For one, a sound discharge process prevents unnecessary readmissions and optimizes reimbursement. But you also carry a heavy compliance burden to satsify CMS hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and the patient safety standards outlined on the discharge planning worksheet. The question is: How proactive is your hospital at self-auditing—and correcting—its discharge policy?
In this webinar, learn from other hospitals’ deficiencies so that you can improve your hospital’s compliance with CMS discharge planning standards—before surveyors come knocking. Healthcare compliance expert Sue Dill Calloway will detail exactly how federal and state sur-veyors assess your hospital’s discharge practices using CoPs and the discharge planning worksheet. She will address proposed changes to the worksheet, as well as the IMPACT Act. And she will show you how to use the new “blue boxes”—or recommended practices—to improve patient outcomes.
When you complete this webinar, you’ll have a complete grasp of the discharge planning process, how CMS Hospital CoPs relate to discharge processes, and the discharge planning standards your hospital must meet. You’ll understand how to reconcile medication, create a discharge summary and instruction sheet, maximize reimbursement—and cultivate a culture of consistent, reliable, and safe patient care from start to finish.
