The interdisciplinary team (IDT) is critical in hospice care.

However, many agencies struggle with IDT-related questions regarding regulations, compliance, and reimbursement. This webinar will serve as cheat sheet to the frequent asked questions that a hospice consultant regularly encounters to help agencies understand and effectively deploy their own team.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:
  • Recognize common documentation compliance challenges and how the IDT can avoid them
  • Define what documentation is needed to support the physician CTI
  • Demonstrate how to effectively update the plan of care during IDT
  • Conduct an effective IDT meeting and clarify who must attend
  • Define how the entire team can support ongoing hospice eligibility, especially during this time of increased Medicare audits

TESTIMONIALS

"Validation for our teams that enforces our processes, requirements and importance of collaboration and coordination of care."
-Angela, Vidant Home Health and Hospice

"I really liked the honesty that she put into this webinar. We all know that IDT is for all disciplines and that ALL documentation matters. We all need to be present at IDT and speak up and we often only have Nursing speak. Sometimes SW. Music/SW not so much. She put her statement out there in a good way - knowing the sensitivity of SW and Chaplains. We are doing an IDT PIP and the precursor will be that the team will need to watch this first."
-Seasons Hospice

"I don't regret my $ and 90 minutes. The webinar is very informative."
-Dyan, Independent Hospice
