Understanding Hospital CoPs: Standing Orders, Order Sets and Protocols

The changes that were released by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in May 12, 2014 in Federal Register came with a smorgasbord of topics for all types of providers that include updates, clarified definitions and updated interpretations.

Join our expert speaker Duane C. Abbey, Ph.D  on a 180-minute on-demand webinar session on “The Latest Change for the CMS CoPs and New Regulations: Standing Orders, Order Sets, Protocols & More”.

The webinar was initially compiled in 2 sessions, 90-minute each, where the speaker explores the process for making changes to hospital COPs including the Federal Register, the State Operations Manual and special memorandums from CMS.

Abbey will mainly be discussing two different sets of conditions of participation. One is for hospitals, which is generally found at 42 CFR Section 482. Then the second one about Critical Access Hospitals, and they have a special set of conditions of participation found at 42 CFR 485.600 Subpart F.

Additional areas which are addressed in this 180-minute session include special rules for Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), Rural Health Clinics (RHCs), Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs) and other specialized areas. The Federal Register of May 16, 2012 will also be used as a reference in the session.
