Final Rule HH CoPs: Take Your CoPs to the Next Level

OCHCH, 1105 Schrock Road, Suite 140, Columbus, OH 43229

 

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued the final rule Home Health Conditions of Participation (HHCoPs). CMS has issued a proposed rule that will change the effective date from July 13, 2017 to January 13, 2018.

Home health agencies (HHAs) must meet the Medicare HH CoPs in order to participate in the Medicare program. Agencies that fail to meet any of the HH CoPs are at risk, at a minimum, for the imposition of a number of sanctions and potentially at risk for program termination.

Patient Centered care, patient rights and new operational approaches are among the new items coming to CMS’ Home Health Conditions of Participation and agencies need to comply or they could be cited on surveys.

This day-long session will provide a comprehensive work session of the new CoPs. It will emphasize how agencies can get operations moving in the direction for the new Conditions, while still maintaining the standards under the current conditions. This workshop will take your high level overview knowledge of the Conditions of Participation and actually put that knowledge into action. Plenty of sample job descriptions, forms, and patient scenarios to understand the regulations will be included. 

The final rule CMS’ focuses on a patient-centered, data driven, outcome-oriented process that promotes high quality of care, while eliminating several unnecessary procedural burdens on HHAs.

The presenter will discuss the following CMS principles and how to ensure your agency is prepared.

  • Develop a more continuous, integrated care process across all aspects of home health services, based on a patient-centered assessment, and to ensure patient rights
  • Use a patient-centered, interdisciplinary approach that recognizes the contributions of various skilled professionals and their interactions with each other to meet the patient's needs. Care coordination and care planning will be integral to your success.
  • Eliminate the focus on administrative process requirements that lack adequate consensus or evidence that they are predictive of either achieving clinically relevant outcomes for patients or preventing harmful outcomes for patients. Concentrate on job description updates and operational changes that you need to make in your agency.
