Hospitals and related facilities must begin preparing—now—to comply with CMS’s proposed changes.

AudioEducator, a division of audio conference and corporate education leader ProEdTech, will host the live webinar “IMPACT Act and CMS Proposed Changes to the Discharge Planning Standards” with industry veteran Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at 1:00 pm ET. The coming changes to discharge planning standards aren’t just for hospitals.

For instance, CMS will require medication reconciliation upon discharge and information on side effects of new medication. This will affect home health agencies, inpatient rehab facilities, SNFs, and LTC facilities. Discharge instructions and discharge summaries will be required to be sent to physician within 48 hours.

Here’s another example: CMS will soon require five elements to be included in all discharge instructions.

What does all this mean for you? More paperwork and better planning! Hospitals and related facilities must begin preparing—now—to comply with CMS’s proposed changes. For one thing, you’ll need to rewrite your transfer form and discharge evaluation form to collect the new required assessment elements.

In this session, regulatory compliance expert Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD will take you through the details and effects of CMS’s proposed changes to discharge planning standards—as well as discuss another critical federal rule change: the new IMPACT Act.

All healthcare professionals—from discharge planners, transitional care nurses, and chief nursing officers to social workers and compliance officers—will benefit from this session. You will learn to:

  • Understand the 5 new elements CMS will require in the discharge summary
  • Complete a compliant transfer form
  • Track the discharge summary and instructions, which will need to be sent to the primary care practitioner within 48 hours of discharge
  • Measure 5 IMPACT Act-required elements, including functional status and chances, skin integrity and changes, and medication reconciliation
