About the Event
Day 1 | Tuesday, June 25, 2019 | Registration: 8:00AM | Workshop: 8:30AM – 4:00PM | Hospice Compliance
This workshop will address some of the greatest challenges facing hospices today including live discharges and extreme lengths of stay –
both long and short. We will discuss under what circumstances a hospice can and should discharge patients and the processes that should
be followed. The impact of extremely short lengths of stay and potential ways of dealing with them will be addressed. One of the best tools
for delivering quality patient care and managing it properly is the Interdisciplinary Group (IDG) meeting. This workshop delves into the
purpose of the IDG meeting and how best to utilize this meeting to achieve the goal of high quality, coordinated hospice care. A sample
IDG agenda is provided to all participants who will learn what should and should not be documented by the IDG and the techniques to
be employed in creating value and efficiency of the meeting and its purpose. Hot topics in hospice Targeted Probe & Educate.
A regulatory and policy update focused on what to expect over the next few years for hospice will round out the day.
