Opening Remarks and Welcome
Dee Kornetti, MA, PT, HCS-D, HCS-C, COS-C, and Jan Milliman
Join Dee Kornetti and AHCC Director Jan Milliman as they kick off this entertaining and educational three days of speaker presentations and Q&As.

Session 1: Elements of Compliance: Select a Compliance Officer and Committee and Conduct Regular Training
Lori Apple, RN, CLNC, HCS-C
Your compliance program is a bulwark against fines and survey deficiencies, but it’s only as strong as the weakest link in your organization. Establish an everyday culture of compliance to keep your agency safe from costly audits and fines. Learn how to designate the best compliance officer and committee members (Element 1 of a compliance program), and the requirements for conducting regular and effective staff training and education (Element 3).

Session 2: Compliant Documentation From Start to Finish: Know What to Record From Intake to Discharge
Arlene Maxim, RN, HCS-C
Defensible documentation begins at intake. From reporting diagnoses that are acceptable under PDGM to confirming eligibility, your intake staff is responsible for demonstrating compliance from the start. And under the new discharge planning Condition of Participation, your responsibility for accurate documentation doesn’t end with your agency. You must be prepared to provide additional necessary clinical information to other providers. Learn how to establish processes that keep your agency running smoothly.

Session 3: Elements of Compliance: Written Policies and Procedures and Standards of Conduct
Dee Kornetti, MA, PT, HCS-D, HCS-C, COS-C
No agency wants to face charges of fraud or violations of home health regulatory guidelines. Written compliance policies, practices, and standards of conduct will help demonstrate your commitment to compliance and prevent issues. Learn how to develop and implement policies, procedures, and standards of conduct that are specific, compliant, and enforceable (Element 2 of a compliance program).
