Cary, NC (PRWEB) April 28, 2014
ACHC Clinical Compliance Educator, Lisa Meadows, will be presenting at the California Association for Health Services at Home (CAHSAH) Annual Conference and Home Care Expo on May 13, 2014. CAHSAH is a leading statewide home care association in the nation and the voice of home care in the western United States. The annual conference will be held at the Renaissance Hotel & Palm Springs Convention Center in Palm Springs, CA, and will be attended by leadership and management from all levels of home health, hospice, and providers of non-medical personal care service in the home.
The presentation titled “The New Home Health Sanctions: Tips & Techniques to Avoid Home Health Sanctions” will cover important aspects of compliance for home care providers. The 90-minute session will help administrators, faculty, and clinical personnel better understand the new home health sanctions that will be effective mid-2014. Attendees will gain an understanding of survey situations that could potentially trigger a sanction. The presentation will also examine the recent year’s top 10 CMS-cited deficiencies in order to help providers avoid common mistakes. The presentation will be held from 10:15 AM – 11:45 AM and is open to all CAHSAH attendees.
“ACHC is excited for the opportunity to speak at such a great conference and support the members of CAHSAH,” said Julie Pazun, ACHC Director, Home Health, Hospice, Private Duty, Behavioral Health, and Ambulatory Care. “As a leading accreditation organization, we believe in the importance of continuing education for providers, and are pleased to address some of the issues associated with the new home health sanctions.”
