The Conditions of Participation (CoP)  are the legal and regulatory requirements that hospitals and case management professionals must follow to be compliant in their role as discharge planners.  It is important that all case management professionals, including both nurses and social workers, are familiar with the changes to the Conditions of Participation for Discharge Planning that were announced in October 2020 for Federal Fiscal Year 2021.

From here we will then discuss these most recent changes from the Medicare program and how they will impact the roles of the RN case manager and the social worker. Learn how to be sure that your processes address the complexities of the new healthcare environment and that your role as a case manager or social worker is designed and staffed to meet the changes ahead! Be sure you know the old rules, the new rules and the proposed rules so that your practice will be current and legal!  Join us in reviewing the current rules, the new rules, and the proposed rules from CMS for Discharge Planning for 2021. 

Why you should attend:

In this program we will review start with reviewing the current rules for discharge planning. Are you compliant with these rules? The proposed rules that are still under consideration will be reviewed as they may have a profound effect on how case management departments organize their work. It will also affect the workloads of RN case managers and social workers.  Patients in ambulatory settings such as out-patient surgery, outpatient procedures and emergency departments may need to be assessed for the purpose of creating a discharge plan. Family caregivers and physicians will be expected to be much more involved than they have in the past. This program will review the current rules and regulations from the Conditions of Participation (CoP) for Discharge Planning.
