Connecting the Dots: Quality, Clinical Care, and Compliance
All healthcare entities, including hospice programs, must have a living breathing compliance plan. With healthcare moving toward pay for performance and public reporting of quality metrics, hospices must also be able to create and adhere to a quality improvement program that will demonstrate sustained quality of care delivery. This session will offer you an opportunity to “Connect the Dots” between quality and compliance in order to stay compliant with all regulatory requirements and on top of the leader board for quality of care delivery.
- Verbalize an understanding of the required elements of a compliance plan
- Develop a risk analysis identifying OIG risks in your program
- Develop a root cause analysis of quality metrics having a negative impact on delivering quality patient care
- Describe a compliance plan and quality improvement program that connects required elements of performance with exceptional patient care delivery
