Agenda/Course Outline

Monday, June 4, 2018

7:00 – 8:00 a.m. Registration and Continental breakfast

8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. It’s time for your 6-month CoP check-up
Speaker: Diane Link
The new CoP standards and their interpretive guidelines for patient rights, infection control, discharge planning, care planning & coordination, took effect in January. Now’s the time to check-in on your new policies and procedures to ensure they are fully compliant, identify any gaps, and focus in on the areas that need additional attention.
Bonus: Bring in samples of the policies you are most unsure about and our expert will review them to ensure they satisfy surveyors, and recommend revisions if necessary.
Tool: Audit tool to ensure policies are CoP compliant

9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Shore up the areas surveyors are focusing on
Speaker: Robert Markette
Learn which areas surveyors are attacking first when it comes to compliance with the new CoPs.  Don’t wait until a surveyor comes knocking, ensure your policies and procedures are up to par. 

10:30 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. BREAK 

10:45 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. QAPI Prep: Identify gaps and fill the holes before it’s too late
Speaker: Robert Markette
Run through the last-minute preparations you’ll need to ensure you are compliant come July 13, 2018, when the new QAPI requirement takes effect. The CoP interpretive guidelines state that agencies should have one performance improvement project (PIP) either in development, on-going or completed every calendar year. Pinpoint where you are in the process, understand where you should be, and learn how to get into compliance quickly.
Bonus: Ensure your policies and procedures meet all of CoP guidelines for the infection control requirements.
Tool:  QAPI compliance checklist 

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. LUNCH 

1:00 p.m. – 2:15 p.m. Ensure your care planning and coordination are in line with CoPs
Speaker: Diane Link
New care planning and care coordination requirements are at the core of the new CoPs. Work through the interpretive guidelines to ensure your agency is creating a plan of care that is unique to the individual patient with limited orders and specific goals. Get strategies for communicating with and gathering information from providers in other settings. Plus, walk through the new home health aide supervision and training requirements to ensure your policies and day-to-day operations are compliant and can stand up to a survey.

2:15 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. Changing of the Guard: Understand new job descriptions and responsibilities
Speaker: Diane Link
Go over the standards that define the governing body, administrator, clinical manager, and parent-branch relationship. Ensure your organizational structure, including lines of authority and services furnished, is clearly defined in writing.
Tool: Sample policy defining organization structure, roles & responsibilities 

3:15 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. BREAK 
  

3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Patient rights: Identify risk areas, shore up compliance
Speaker: Robert Markette
The interpretive guidelines around patients’ rights are the most extensive, and therefore this CoP requires the most work when it comes to updating policies and procedures. Ensure that you are in compliance with the communication standards around patients’ rights, including timeframes and notifications to proper recipients (patient, legal representative, patient assigned representative).

Also, check your discharge planning and transfer process to make sure it’s in line with the new guidelines, including the timing of regular re-evaluation and modification of the discharge plan, and involvement of physician, patient and caregiver.
