This program will cover in detail the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations and interpretive guidelines for medical records. This is an extremely important section and includes hot issues like verbal orders, history and physicals, organization of the department, standing orders, discharge summaries, medication orders, and more. It will include the proposed changes in 2019 under the Hospital Improvement Rule, containing changes to outpatient medical records, the rights of patients, and documentation changes. Our speaker will also cover some information on HIPAA from the Office of Civil Rights and discuss the important proposed changes to the CMS discharge planning standards and the number of things that will need to be documented in the medical record.
It is important to ensure that the required CMS documentation elements are contained in the electronic medical record (EMR) as hospitals move toward a completely integrated EMR. These should also be reflected in the hospital P&Ps. The number of deficiencies in each of the CMS medical records sections will be discussed.
