Put Your QAPI Plan Into Action, Prepare for CoPs, Achieve 5-Star Rating

Product Code: YPADA051617D

Quick Overview

CMS has granted home health agencies six additional months to prepare for the Conditions of Participation – so don’t waste any more time. Implementing the CoPs is a huge time and cost burden so the sooner agencies begin to put policies and procedures into place, the better off they’ll be on Jan. 13, 2018. Home health agencies are unprepared for the QAPI requirement and must identify top quality issues, determine how they’re going to work on those issues, and hire new staff as part of the QAPI program. If they don’t, they will be cited during surveys.
