Compliance remains a white hot topic because the blinding spotlight of increased scrutiny has been turned up to the point that it has become lethal to some providers. Yes, providers have been driven out of business because they failed to place the right amount of emphasis on compliance. Once the auditors come knocking it is too late. This session offers information to enable the home health professional to understand the process of developing an effective compliance program and the necessary elements with emphasis on the audit/monitoring process. You will hear what your audits should reveal, and more important -- what to do with the results. The process of developing effective operational and clinical policies to ensure compliance will be discussed. Current home care risk areas will be identified, and methods to decrease those risks will be presented. We will discuss the importance of Federal laws regulating marketing activities and relationships with referral sources. Come learn, hear examples and gain a fresh perspective on compliance planning. Come out of the scorching light into the shade. Course Instructor - Glenda Burke and Anne Novick Branan​ Read More

Do you believe the audit process can be fun? Maybe that is false advertising. A better promise might be that this session will be fun. Fun or not, the era of greater scrutiny for home care providers is here to stay and so effective, thorough audits are a necessity for survival. Please come and learn all you wanted to know about the audit process, but were afraid to ask. Audits strike fear in the hearts of most of us. Learn methods to turn this around and make auditing work for us; not against us. We’ll identify steps to develop meaningful audit processes that will produce results that will actually be beneficial in the daily operations and preparation for external audits. Is there a difference between auditing and monitoring? What will I do with results? What if the results look bad? How can I make sure the results are accurate? These are just some questions we will answer in this informative program. Course Instructor - Glenda A. Burke Read More

MS has focused much of their recent health care reform efforts on costly and inefficient elements of traditional care delivery under the Medicare model. One of the greatest cost concerns of the care continuum is the rate of hospital readmissions; particularly those patients who return to the hospital within 30 days of discharge. These patients, who are unable to complete their care episodes in the community due to medical concerns, nearly double the cost of the episode when they are readmitted to the hospital. Beginning October 1, hospitals were penalized for readmissions that occur for specific diagnoses, and this will continue to the eventual ACO/Bundling models, where readmissions will be effectively un-funded for hospital providers. This webinar series will address the topic of costly readmissions, how some hospitals are preparing to address these concerns, the role of post-acute home health providers in reducing the rate of re-hospitalizations, and ideas on how to address patients traditionally readmitted to acute care. In addition, specific diagnoses will be vetted for focused and effective interventions that can reduce returns to acute care hospitals. Readmission rates are expected to decline to single digit levels over the next decade, and the time to prepare your staff and care protocols to achieve these levels is now.

We will look at the top ten deficiencies that are tripping up even the best providers, offering guidance based on examples from many successful organizations from across the nation. Excellence should be shamelessly copied.  We will focus on how to implement real world strategies to ensure your home care organization is in compliance with Florida State Regulations, CMS’s CoPs and Accreditation standards. Effective July 1, 2014, CMS is scheduled to begin imposing civil monetary penalties on HHAs for either the number of days the agency is not in compliance with the CoPs, or for each instance the agency is not in compliance.  Now, more than ever, it pays to focus on proven compliance strategies before the surveyors are standing at your front door!

Approximately 20% of Medicare beneficiaries experience a rehospitalization within 30 days of discharge, resulting in significant patient stress and cost to our health care system. In this session, Ms. Kramer will discuss readmission trends in Florida and the United States, and examine the most frequently identified causes of readmissions. The financial impact will be discussed as well as successful strategies to improve care transitions from hospitals to home care. Course instructor - Beth Kramer Read More
