Presented in partnership with
the Ohio Council for Home Care & Hospice
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) maintains the Conditions of Participation (CoPs) as the foundation for improving quality and protecting the health and safety of beneficiaries, thus they are of primary importance to all health care providers. Recently, as part of the 2013 PPS Final Rule, CMS introduced new survey sanctions for home health providers, serving to underscore the vital importance of maintaining compliance with the CoPs. This presentation will provide a review and comparison of the CoPs for Home Health and Hospice with an emphasis on the most frequently cited CoPs as published by CMS. We’ll dissect the CoPs to examine the influence of process, and the influence of people. Participants will hear practical and useful approaches for performance monitoring for compliance.
- Identify the most frequently cited CoPs for Home Health and Hospice.
- Describe the most common reasons for the citations.
- Discuss strategies for monitoring and implementing practices for consistent compliance.
