CMS data shows that hospital personnel are frequently uniformed about medical record requirements—and therefore represent a serious compliance risk. Every hospital department (yes, you, lab and x-ray) must heed health information management rules. And the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is not going to sit around and wait for you to get hospital conditions of participation (CoPs) right.
In this webinar, learn from CoP compliance expert Sue Dill Calloway, exactly how the feds expect you to meet medical records standards—which are outlined not only by CMS but also by The Joint Commission (TJC), the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.
Calloway will discuss common deficiency areas, such as: what constitutes informed consent, when to perform a history and physical, and requirements for medication orders and department organization. She’ll also highlight key privacy and confidentiality HIPAA rules; explain how to follow the Breach Notification law; and outline how proposed changes could revise the transfer form, discharge planning evaluation form, and nursing admission assessment form.
You’ll leave this session confident in your understanding of recent CMS hospital CoP changes—and ready to meet the next surveyor who shows up for a compliance or validation audit. Plus, you’ll earn the opportunity to go beyond compliance to improve patient care, enhance data security, and embrace the fully integrated electronic medical record (EMR).
This comprehensive program will teach you how to:
