EWebinar Description

Compliance is measured by the completeness and quality of a hospice provider’s documentation in today’s risk focused environment. Does your patient documentation include enough detail to withstand scrutiny of any reviewer? Are you at risk for reimbursement payback for non-compliance? This Webinar about documentation of hospice care will identify risk areas as well as approaches for improving the quality and completeness of hospice documentation for regulatory compliance.

Webinar Objectives

At the completion of this Webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the current focus on hospice from federal agencies and impact of the focus
  • Discuss how the quality and completeness of documentation impacts compliance audits
  • Identify documentation risk areas and approaches to lower documentation risk
