About the Event
During this session we will address some of the leading issues in hospice today. Questions about the integrity of the hospice industry are at an all-time high. Compliance is not only the job of the administrator. It is crucial that all staff understand the top areas of vulnerability related to billing and regulations. This workshop will delve into those vulnerabilities and provide practical tips for compliance. There will be an emphasis on documentation for hospices as it relates to assessments, plans of care and IDG meetings since most of the top survey deficiencies in hospice are related to this documentation and the processes that support these activities. While the launch of Hospice Compare is a significant evolution of the hospice quality reporting program for hospices, there will be more including the anticipated replacement of HIS with HEART – a standardized comprehensive assessment tool for hospices. A regulatory and policy update will also help agencies keep their finger on the pulse of the industry. The FY2018 Hospice Final Rule should be released prior to this workshop and, if so, will be reviewed and explained.
