WEBINAR – Effectively Managing Hospice Live Discharges Part 2: Eligibility Assessment, Documentation, Discharge Planning & the Care Continuum

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/wshpco/webinar/effectively-managing-hospice-live-discharges-part-2-eligibility-assessment-documentation-discharge-planning-the-care-continuum

Live discharges are when patients’ hospice services must be discontinued due to ineligibility or other reasons.  This can often result in feeling like the services we touted are now yanked away.  Does your staff know the difference between a revocation and a live discharge and how to continually assess patients’ eligibility?  The chances are one in five that a patient will face a live discharge.  Therefore, eligibility and live discharge are ongoing issues that should be addressed in IDG.  Is your agency prepared for ongoing eligibility assessment, discharge planning, and mechanisms to help patients receive continued support even after hospice services are discontinued?  Do you know the characteristics of problematic live discharges?  Does your agency use those practices?  What live discharge reports and statistics are reviewed by the government?  Are you operating under the radar?  Attend this informative webinar to learn the answer to these questions and more.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Regulatory guidance regarding hospice live discharges
  • Importance of ongoing eligibility assessment
  • The when, who, and how of planning a hospice live discharge
  • Characteristics of hospice programs with problematic live discharges
  • How to use hospice PEPPER reports and the live discharge data that is the government’s focus
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Helpful resource links

WEBINAR – How to Develop & Implement a Palliative Care Program
Jun 18 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/wshpco/webinar/how-to-develop-implement-a-palliative-care-program

Palliative care is often mistakenly viewed as end-of-life care, when it is actually meant to support patients and families throughout the treatment for serious diseases.  Current estimates suggest that approximately 75% of people approaching the end of life may benefit from palliative care.  In addition, the growing number of older people and increasing prevalence of chronic illness mean even more people will benefit.  Palliative care matters, and despite well-documented facts, it is still underdeveloped and underfunded globally.  Therefore, opportunities to develop palliative care programs abound because most people who need it are living longer and benefiting from disease treatment.

The healthcare and insurance communities are listening, as shown by the increased number of programs that are homebased, community-based, and in hospitals.  This session will focus on basic market assessment, development, and implementation of a palliative care program and will provide tools to focus your efforts.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Identifying which type of program is right for your agency
  • Effective and informative needs assessments
  • Identifying potential community partners
  • Data-driven planning
  • Implementation timelines
  • Marketing and outreach program plan
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Key resources
    • Sample implementation worksheet
    • Assessment tool questions
    • Outcome information from existing programs

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This informative session is designed for administrators, hospice team members, business development leadership, strategic planning personnel, contract managers, hospice or home health owners, and anyone who wants more information about the steps toward palliative care program development.

WEBINAR – False Claims Act: Fraud & Abuse Update
Jun 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/wshpco/webinar/false-claims-act-fraud-abuse-update

Increased hospice enforcement has continued for several years.  This enforcement trend results from continuing growth in the hospice industry and related increases in Medicare hospice reimbursement.  Initially, this focus was a surprise to hospice providers.  Despite increased enforcement, many have not taken notice.  This is problematic because increased scrutiny also increases audit activity and other analysis.  Between significant takebacks from Medicare audits and crippling judgments from False Claims Act litigation, hospice providers have to operate differently in this era of heightened scrutiny.

With increased enforcement continuing for the foreseeable future, hospice providers must commit more time and resources to compliance.  Agencies need to be aware of OIG and CMS areas of concern related to fraud and common audit findings.  To ensure compliance, providers need to actively audit and monitor operations, educate personnel, and be able to respond to ADR requests, recoupment demands, and more.  This webinar will review scrutinized areas, OIG-identified issues about fraud and abuse, common hospice audit issues, recent developments in False Claims Act litigation, strategies to identify and remedy noncompliance, and how to respond to ADRs, fraud investigations, and related matters.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why hospice is on the hot seat
  • Hospice and nursing home relationships, including compliance concerns
  • Are your marketing materials safe?
  • Common mistakes on hospice claims
  • Hospice documentation and terminal illness – can we avoid being second guessed?
  • Hospice average length of stay and other key data points – are you on the radar?
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • ADR policy

 WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This informative session is designed for administrators, medical directors, compliance officers, nurses, billing staff, owners, and management.

WEBINAR – The Great Ethical Challenge: Over-Involved Versus Under-Involved
Jun 27 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/wshpco/webinar/the-great-ethical-challenge-over-involved-versus-under-involved

Based on the current state of healthcare (increased caseloads, continual regulatory changes, documentation requirements, focus on patient/family satisfaction surveys, etc.), patient care workers in hospice and home care often struggle with time management.  Some say, “This is not why I got into this work” or “I give patients and families all the time they need and then stay late to do documentation on my own time.”  Add the challenge – and common dynamic – of working with patients/families who have experienced some degree of past/present trauma and it can be difficult to establish personal and professional boundaries or use time effectively.  This webinar will provide current data to assist in understanding the critical nature of establishing personal and professional boundaries, especially when working with traumatized people.

ASWB ACE Credits for Social Workers Pending

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Define “moral distress” and how this dynamic can contribute to our degree of involvement
  • Discuss the connection between trauma and trauma-informed care as it relates to providing patient/family care
  • How being either over-involved or under-involved relates to caring for people with traumatic life experiences
  • Apply evidence-based skills and interventions to situation examples
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Exercise to assess current team functioning
    • Self-assessment exercise
    • Trauma-informed care standards worksheet
    • Guide to assist in finding the balance between over/under involvement
    • Training materials for orientation and ongoing coaching
    • Handout with lecture notes
    • List of references, bibliography, and additional learning opportunities

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

WEBINAR – Partnership Series: Building Strong & Compliant Skilled-Nursing Partnerships
Jul 9 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/wshpco/webinar/partnership-series-building-strong-compliant-skilled-nursing-partnerships

Estimates for long-term-care expenditures continue to rise.  According to the US Census Bureau, just over 5% of the 65+ population occupy nursing homes, congregate care, assisted living, and board-and-care homes; 4.2% are in nursing homes.  Patients who reside in skilled-nursing facilities tend to be more acute and fragile, so hospice can provide many benefits for those residents.

However, the skilled-nursing facility (SNF) environment is changing in meaningful ways in 2019.  Reimbursement requirements are easing the documentation requirements.  PDPM (Patient Driven Payment Model) will be implemented, which will be a new classification system.  In addition, the SNF Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Program’s 30-day all-cause readmissions started for fiscal year 2019 in October 2018.  This program will address SNF reimbursements, regulations, and staff.  What are their needs and struggles?  How can we provide solutions and drive value to the nursing facilities?  This session will benefit staff newly involved with SNFs and others who want more information.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Statistics, definitions, and types of SNF care
  • Organization structure and staff roles
  • Reimbursement environment and why outcomes matter
  • Elements of contracting
  • Hospice value proposition and strategies for a successful partnership
  • Suggested marketing tools
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Sample tool for staff roles and potential needs
    • Sample checklist of marketing tools
    • Useful websites

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This informative session is directed to new hospice sales professionals, staff members involved in the SNF environment, sales managers, administrators, and team members wanting insight into SNFs and how hospice can help patients in those facilities.

WEBINAR – The IDG Meeting: It Takes a Special Skill Set
Jul 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: https://hospice.eewebinarnetwork.com/a/wshpco/webinar/the-idg-meeting-it-takes-a-special-skill-set

Most of us do not come to the hospice setting with the ability “to be” interdisciplinary.  Functioning in an interdisciplinary manner is not the normal state of being in healthcare.  Likewise, pointing to a room and saying “now go have an interdisciplinary group (IDG) meeting” is often beyond our skillset.  This webinar will address the vital importance of achieving a true interdisciplinary way of providing care.  It will focus on team meetings that produce improved problem solving, coordination of care, and, as research demonstrates, higher levels of patient/family satisfaction.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Common challenges that interfere with providing true interdisciplinary care
  • How the regulations encourage interdisciplinary team functioning, but also create obstacles
  • Interdisciplinary team meeting styles, techniques, and strategies
  • Three ways to ensure “better meetings” is not equivalent to “longer meetings”
  • A three-phase plan to develop high-functioning interdisciplinary group meetings
  • TAKE-AWAY TOOLKIT
    • Assessment exercise
    • Optimal team functioning guide
    • Team leadership techniques list
    • Guide for keeping meetings on track
    • Training materials for current and future team members
    • Planning exercise
    • Handout with additional lecture notes
    • List of references and additional learning opportunities

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This enlightening webinar is designed for all team members, especially those in charge of team functioning and IDG meetings.  Senior leadership will also benefit as this information can help raise the bar for creating an organization that is truly interdisciplinary on all levels.
