Course Curriculum
Every hospital, including critical access hospitals, needs to attend this important webinar. This program will cover the new changes to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) discharge planning standards that became effective November 29, 2019. These apply to all hospitals that accept Medicare and Medicaid, and for the first time will apply to critical access hospitals. Hospitals will be happy to find out that CMS scaled back on many of the proposed rules about which hospitals had expressed concern.
This webinar will review regulations on patient timely access to medical records, the discharge planning process, discharge instructions, discharge planning requirements, transfers to other facilities, assessment of readmission within 30 days, caregiver rights and recommendations, reduction of factors that lead to preventable readmissions, timely discharge planning and more.
This program will also cover sections that were not adopted by CMS, but rather included in recommendations, including the prescription drug monitoring program, the 24 hour requirement to initiate a discharge plan, 8 items to be in the discharge planning assessment, 21 items to be included in the transfer form, medication reconciliation, the discharge summary and more. Come join this important webinar to learn about what your hospital has to do to be in compliance with the revised discharge planning standards.
