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.

On January 25, 2013, the Federal Register published the final HHS Omnibus HIPAA rules to modify the HIPAA Privacy, Security, Breach Notification and enforcement rules. These “Mega HIPAA” modifications implement most of the privacy and security provisions of the HITECH Act and relevant provisions of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act. These new rules markedly change the obligations imposed on home health agencies, business associates, and business associate subcontractors. The rules are effective as of March 26, 2013 and providers must comply with the final rules by September 23, 2013. Participate in this webinar and you will learn about the HIPAA changes that your agency needs to pay attention to.  Speakers, Cheryl Leslie and Pam Meliso, will review the important components including deadlines, breach notification, business associates, enforcement, penalties, privacy, security and genetic information. Learn the action steps your agency should take now, including revising current policies, procedures, practices and workforce training. We will also discuss how to incorporate a HIPAA compliance program into your existing audit compliance program. Don’t miss this timely topic from a convenient location of your choice!

This session is geared toward the home health clinician who will be documenting the patient’s assessments and visit notes in a new way. We will discuss and stress how much importance ICD-10-CM places on “specificity”. The attendee will not only learn how to identify common home health diagnosis, but also how to think about them in a new way. We will discuss the changes that first need to occur in the mind of the clinician allowing them to choose the most appropriate code under the new rules.
