DAY 1: Advanced Drill Down: Hospice Care Planning

What do we promise patients and families? Care planned and delivered to meet their unique circumstances, wishes and needs. Are we making good on that promise? According to surveyors, MAC medical reviewers, and the OIG, definitely not. Join us as we turn the Hospice Fundamentals lens on what is shaping up to be one of the largest compliance and quality of care issues of the next few years.

Join Susan Balfour, Roseanne Berry and TNMHO for an advanced drill down into the care planning process and leave with both advanced personal skills and the knowledge and tools to assess current agency process and performance.

Throughout the day participants will put content to work via case studies and small group exercises. And, to continue the work back home, participants will leave with a USB drive loaded with a set of tools, resources and samples to use going forward.
Here are some of the items included:

TOOL: Assessing Your IDG Meetings

TOOL: Survey Readiness

RESOURCE: CoPs for 2016 Top 25 Survey Deficiencies

RESOURCE: Care Planning CoPs & Interpretive Guidelines

RESOURCE: Top Ten Auditing and Monitoring Mistakes
