HHCoPs: CMS Interpretive Guidelines Released



Time: On Demand

Length: 2 Hours

CMS issued the Final Home Health Conditions of Participation (HHCoPs) which went into effect on January 13, 2018. These HHCoPs contain the first major revision of several areas since 1989. The rule expands standards for patient rights, care planning and care coordination and creates two new requirements -- one for a quality assessment and performance improvement program (QAPI) and another for an infection control program.
Join us for a webinar with industry leader, the National Association of Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), to learn important insights into CMS’s Interpretive Guidelines for these new regulations that will equip agency staff with the tools necessary to help ensure compliance.
Join this webinar to: 
  • Review the interpretive guidelines for the revised CoPs
  • Address the key changes to the guidance
  • Discuss strategies for compliance with the revised HHCoPs 
Please note: this webinar is a free event, and no CEUs or certificates of participation are provided. All registrants will receive a copy of the recorded webinar and slides if you cannot attend the live event.
