More than 70 percent of providers are now using telemedicine services, according to reports from HIMSS Analytics. While this is good news for both patients and providers (in terms of quicker access to care, reduced hospital admissions, and greater provider choice), this evolution comes with compliance challenges. Quarterly reports from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) highlight serious deficiencies in telemedicine contracts. Is your hospital falling for common compliance pitfalls, too?
Join hospital compliance consultant Sue Dill Calloway as she explains how to steer clear of deficiencies by including the right provisions in all your telemedicine contracts. You’ll learn which regulation and interpretive guidelines apply to hospitals accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC)—and how to handle recent changes TJC made to crosswalk with CMS standards. Whether you’re at a large, small, or rural hospital—or a critical access hospital (CAH)—you’ll come away with a thorough understanding of how to draft written agreements, manage credentialing by proxy, and properly enact the credentialing and privileging process for your physicians and practitioners.
After attending this webinar, you will be better prepared to enforce key practices that ensure your hospital’s compliance with conditions of participation (CoPs). You’ll also understand the separate and critical regulatory compliance responsibilities of the board, the medical staff and the hospital. Calloway will cover peer review issues, adverse events and notifications, periodic appraisals, changes to CoP tag numbers, and how to handle complaints received about the distant site physician. Equipped with all this information, you’re sure to be on CMS’s “good contracts” list!
