A series of two webinars for hospice personnel!
This two-part series takes a deep dive into the seven fundamental elements of an effective compliance program. Most home health and hospice providers are familiar with these seven elements and the risks identified by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) for their provider type. However, many struggle with implementation, determining the level of detail expected, and how the OIG measures effectiveness. Are your policies and procedures written at an acceptable education level? How do you determine this? Is your voicemail hotline truly anonymous? This series will detail the seven elements and provide insight into the expectations for each component.

Part 2: Communication, Internal Monitoring, Disciplinary Guidelines & Corrective Actions
This session will focus on the remaining four elements of an effective compliance program:
