Tom and I started Maxwell Healthcare Associates to help our friends in the post-acute space. The work home health and hospice professionals do can drastically improve the quality of health care across the continuum and improve the quality of life for those receiving care. It's our aim to help ensure home health and hospice agencies are equipped with the insights, resources and technology they need to not only survive but thrive.
With payment reforms and regulations like the new Conditions of Participation (CoPs), this is a tough time in the industry —perhaps the most challenging landscape ever. To deliver quality care and still make acceptable margins is a combination everyone is trying to figure out. What makes it more challenging still is that many care providers don't know exactly what they're being asked to do. This Home Health Care News excerpt describes the feeling in the industry well:
"Inconsistent wording throughout the CoPs has made it difficult for some providers to understand exactly what their requirements are, while some vague language has also left interpretation up in the air..."
The Maxwell Healthcare Associates team has been working side by side with handfuls of home health agencies, technology vendors, regulatory entities and more to understand and operationalize the best ways to gain regulatory compliance amid the new CoPs. To help the industry, we'd like to share our findings with you during an hour-long webinar. We'll present February 21st and 22nd at 4pm Central.
When you attend, you'll takeaway:
CoP summary and regulatory compliance timeline: Interpreting the CoPs is a job in itself. We'll give you our summary along with when you should focus on each item.
Clinical, operational and technological solutions: We’ll relay ideas on specific processes you can you put into place to ensure compliance. We'll cover clinical and operational actions but will primarily focus on features your EMR already has that will help you not only maintain compliance but reduce date entry and costly manual redundant processes.
Monitoring and reporting suggestions: You can only manage what you can measure. We'll let you know which reports and trend analyses will keep you and your team on track with the CoPs.
We hope you can join us. If not, sign up anyway. We can send you relevant and helpful resources as a follow up.
Further, feel free to send your CoP related questions our way ahead of time. We'll be sure to reply and cover them on the call. Email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
