A series of three webinars for hospice personnel!
Every hospice encounters these three complex situations: live discharges, unplanned hospitalizations, and decision making when patients are no longer eligible. The Prudent Hospice™ manages these situations with an approach that balances the needs of patients and families with regulatory requirements and establishment of optimal internal agency processes.
You may register for the entire series or individual sessions.

Live discharges have drawn the interest of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), MedPAC, and the OIG. How is your hospice managing them? This webinar will help hospices of all sizes tackle the challenge. You'll learn the five types of live discharges, regulations for each, and key audits and monitors.
Have you ever had patients that were hospitalized without your knowledge? This webinar will explore the issue from two perspectives: how to minimize the occurrences and how to effectively manage the situation when it occurs.
Every hospice faces challenges when a patient's continued eligibility becomes unclear. Simultaneous functions are underway, including providing care, eligibility assessment, and consideration of possible discharge planning. Without a clear process, the situation quickly becomes muddled. How can you accomplish it all, meet the patient/family needs, and preserve payment? This webinar will explore those issues and provide a helpful tool to guide you through the process.
