Product Description

Protect Patients’ Safety, Heed Utilization Review Mandates, and More

The patient safety requirements in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Quality Assurance & Performance Improvement (QAPI) section are problematic standards, to say the least. From the PI program rules and the QAPI worksheet, to the revised tag numbers and the proposed 2019 changes, you have a lot to tackle in the coming year.

Learn to clear this hurdle and upgrade your hospital’s Conditions of Participation (CoP) compliance in this instructive webinar presented by hospital compliance guru Sue Dill Calloway. Discover concrete steps your team can take to ensure QAPI excellence in 2019, as well as compliance with the CoPs on radiology safety and dietician credentialing.

After attending, you’ll be able to identify opportunities for improvement in your hospital and expertly track medical errors and adverse events. Specifically, you’ll understand your obligations related to: QAPI, accountability of medical staff, radiological services, food & dietary services, Utilization Review (UR), and the hospital’s physical environment.

Session Highlights

This compliance-focused program will teach you how to:

  • Prepare for proposed changes to QAPI—particularly the patient safety section
  • Meet radiology mandates, including patient shielding, staff supervision, and reporting
  • Adhere to rules for lab services & the Look Back Program, including blood bank and tissue specimen requirements
  • Handle patient diets, menus, nutritional assessments/needs, and therapeutic menus
  • Comply with UR rules for committee composition, admission versus continuous stays, scope of reviews, and Medicare-patient discharge appeal rights
  • Address physical environment  compliance related to buildings, equipment, life safety code, and emergency preparedness

Who Should Attend

This 5-session training program will benefit professionals who work in hospitals or hospital-owned provider departments, including: chief officers and department directors, directors of health information, quality managers, case managers, nurses & nurse educators, infection preventists, risk managers and compliance officers, Joint Commission liaisons and coordinators, legal counsel, consumer advocates, social workers, and others.

Following the live presentation, the instructor will conduct a Q&A period during which you may ask questions and solicit solutions for your unique situation.
