Thank you to Providence for hosting the class. 

 Plan now to join us as J’non Griffin, RN MHA, HCS-D, HCS-H, HCS-C,  president of Home Health Solutions, LLC, and a nationally recognized speaker with over 30 years of home health experience provides a full day session to fine tune your preparation for the new CoP's. 

Patient Centered care, patient rights and new operational approaches are among the new items coming to CMS’ Home Health Conditions of Participation — and agencies need to comply or they could be cited on surveys. This day long session will provide a comprehensive work session of the new CoPs. It will emphasize how agencies can get operations moving in the direction for the new Conditions, while still maintaining the standards under the current conditions. This workshop will take your high level overview knowledge of the Conditions of Participation and actually put that knowledge into action. Plenty of sample job descriptions, forms, and patient scenarios to understand the regulations will be included.

The final rule CMS’ focuses on a patient-centered, data driven, outcome-oriented process that promotes high quality of care, while eliminating several unnecessary procedural burdens on HHAs.

 The presenter will discuss the following CMS principles and how to ensure your agency is prepared

·        Develop a more continuous, integrated care process across all aspects of home health services, based on a patient-centered assessment, and to ensure patient rights;

·        Use a patient-centered, interdisciplinary approach that recognizes the contributions of various skilled professionals and their interactions with each other to meet the patient's needs. Care coordination and care planning will be integral to your success.

·        Eliminate the focus on administrative process requirements that lack adequate consensus or evidence that they are predictive of either achieving clinically relevant outcomes for patients or preventing harmful outcomes for patients. Concentrate on job description updates and operational changes that you need to make in your agency.

  •      Implementing QAPI and infection prevention and control practices that meets the Conditions of Participation.

 Coffee and bakery items in the morning and a light lunch will be provided on site.

We only have room for 50 participants so register early for this important event!
