Cary, NC (PRWEB) June 05, 2014
ACHC Clinical Compliance Educator, Lisa Meadows, will be presenting at the Home Care Association of New Jersey (HCANJ) Annual Conference and Exhibition on June 12, 2014. HCANJ is a widely-recognized home care and hospice association throughout the East Coast of the United States. The annual conference will be held at Bally’s Atlantic City in Atlantic City, NJ, and will be attended by leading home health and hospice representatives from surrounding regions.
The presentation titled “The New Home Health Sanctions” will cover significant aspects of ensuring staff adherence to the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and compliance for home health providers. The 60-minute session will help administrators, faculty, and clinical personnel better understand the new home health sanctions that will be effective mid-2014. Attendees will learn how to better monitor and audit their practice to avoid alternative sanctions. It will also examine the recent year’s top 10 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) cited deficiencies in order to help providers avoid common mistakes. The presentation will be held from 5:00 PM- 6:00 PM and is open to all HCANJ attendees.
“At ACHC, we recognize the unique challenges that healthcare providers face while complying with changes in the industry,” said Julie Pazun, ACHC Director, Home Health, Hospice, Private Duty, Behavioral Health, and Ambulatory Care. “That is why we place great value on providing continuing education for healthcare providers; we are proud to participate at the HCANJ Conference.”
