In upcoming months, AudioEducator has lined up some informative training session for the medical coding and billing professionals on various specialties. Every webinar is designed to give complete compliance know-how and practical, easy-to-apply advice.
On Wednesday, June 15, AudioEducator will host a 90-minute audio webinar “2016 New CMS CoP Regulations for Managing Grievances and Complaints” with expert speaker Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD. The session will address the grievance requirements by CMS and the complaint standards by the Joint Commission (TJC) or accreditation organization. The CMS issued their first memo summarizing noncompliance, and grievances were a top problematic standard. The January 28, 2016, report by CMS found 773 hospitals out of compliance!
Many hospitals are surprised at the number of regulations and the detailed requirements to comply with this problematic standard. Most hospital in the US that accepts Medicare or Medicaid reimbursement must be in compliance with the CMS Conditions of Participation (CoPs). This program will cover in detail the CMS requirements for hospitals to help prevent the hospital from being found out of compliance with the grievance regulations.
Nationally renowned speaker Sue Dill will also shed light on the TJC standards on complaints and DNV Healthcare on grievances and how these cross walk to the CMS grievance interpretive guidelines. The session will cover what is now required to be documented in the medical record. This is a must attend for any hospital since their staff should be aware and follow the hospital grievance and complaint policy, which should be approved by the board.
The AHRQ have asked the Office of Budget Management to approve a proposal to test the prototype consumer reporting system for patient safety events. This included a proposal to collect information voluntarily from patients, consumers, family members and others via the internet or telephone. This 90-minute session will discuss the AHRQ proposed consumer reporting system for patient safety events and how this could impact the area of grievances and complaints.
