NF Round Table Meetings are intended for Skilled Nursing Members to come together and share questions/challenges/experiences and best practices.
August's meeting will include the following presentation hosted by our Gold Sponsor, Medline, and presented by Ellen Kuebrich, Chief Strategy Officer, Providigm:
Goodbye Grace Period: What will be expected from your Facility Assessment and QAPI in the Coming Year
With over 500 changes to existing regulations, and 19 brand new requirements to comply with, the Final Rule hit the long-term care industry hard. CMS heard concerns regarding the scope and timing of the new requirements for Phase 2 and provided a limited time restriction of enforcement remedies like CMPs, payment denial, or termination for Phase 2 requirements, including the Facility Assessment. Surveyors were instructed to take it easy doling out tags for Phase 2 requirements, and to use those instances as an opportunity for education, instead.
But what happens when they stop taking it easy on you? This interactive lecture will explore how your facility will be affected when this enforcement relief ends. What will be expected in your Facility Assessment moving forward? How do you make documents like the Facility Assessment and your QAPI plan meaningful in Quality Improvement? What can we expect in terms of deficiencies and penalties in 2019?
This interactive session will allow attendees to:
- Become familiar what will happen on and after November 28, 2018, as relief from CMS ends
- Understand the intent and expectation behind the facility assessment and QAPI
- Become aware of the repercussions of having an insufficient facility assessment as it pertains to other related Ftags
- Implement strategies to make QAPI and the Facility Assessment meaningful and actionable in their facility(ies).
There will be time following this presentation to discuss survey experiences and other hot topics!
