CHAPCA: Individualizing each hospice plan of care

Individualizing each hospice plan of care


Webinar Details:

The Conditions of Participation require that the hospice plan of care for each beneficiary be patient-specific, or individualized. So, why do they differ so little? And why, when a hospice provider sees the patient's clinical needs constantly increasing throughout the decline toward death, does the plan of care so often remain relatively unchanged? This viewpoint has hospice auditors scratching their heads

Learning Objective:

  • Successful participants will understand the difference between a standardized and an individualized hospice plan of care.
  • Attendees will be able to recognize the survey- and payment-related risks associated with not individualizing hospice plans of care.
  • Participants will gain perspective be ready to implement simple changes that will both indicate to surveyors that beneficiaries are treated according to their needs and show payers that hospice care and documentation complies with regulatory requirements for payment.
