2019 Discharge And Transitional Planning Under The Current and Proposed CMS Rules

Recorded Webinar | Catherine M. Mullahy | From: Jun 24, 2019 - To: Jun 28, 2019

Speaker: Catherine M. Mullahy (RN, BS, CRRN, CCM) and Jeanne Boling (MSN, CRRN CDMS, CCM)

Discharge planning has become more than just the movement of the patient out of the hospital. It is a “process” that starts at the point of admission and follows beyond discharge and through the continuum of care. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have proposed more “teeth” to the process, with proposed updates to the discharge planning section of the Conditions of Participation. This program will review the most recent reimbursement challenges from the Medicare program as well as strategies for safely transitioning your patients across the continuum of care.

Effective transitional plans can improve your hospital’s value based reimbursement. In addition, we will review how to engage other members of the interdisciplinary care team in the process of planning for the patient’s movement across the continuum including verbal and written hand-off communication. Transitional planning is no longer a destination but a process! Learn how to be certain that your processes address the complexities of the new healthcare environment.

Agenda topics:

- Transitional planning as a process - Case management transitions - Admission assessments
- Social work triggers - Home care triggers - Influences on transitional planning
- Discharge planning compliance - Next level of care providers - Hand-off communication
- Transitions time-outs - How to hard-wire your processes And more!


After this webinar participants will be able to:

  1. Understand transitional planning as a process not an outcome.
  2. Discuss the new CMS changes related to transitional and discharge planning and how they can impact your practice.
  3. Identify best strategies to transition patients across the continuum of care.
