Here are just a few of the practical, step-by-step natural disaster preparation and recovery tactics you’ll receive by taking advantage of this 90-minute online training:
IMPORTANT: In addition to ensuring your patients are cared for, how you prepare for and manage the aftermath of a natural disaster is regulated. Medicare’s Emergency Preparedness requirements, based on your practice type and specialty, require that you comply with HIPAA regulations or face hefty financial penalties. OSHA has specific requirements depending on your practice size as well. All the information in this online training session will be compliant with all required regulations.
In 2018, thousands across the US were seriously affected by natural disasters - including medical practices. Whether it’s a California wildfires, Florida hurricane, or Oklahoma tornado, how you respond and what action you take after the natural disasters is the key to your practice’s longevity and ongoing success.
Based on CMS's expanded conditions of participation, you MUST HAVE A COMPLIANT EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PROGRAM. Without one you’ll never survive a auditor's scrutiny, and you’re at serious danger of losing your approval to see Medicare and/or Medicaid patients.
In most cases, you don’t have the luxury, like medium and large hospitals, to have a dedicated person to comply with these regulations. Instead, it all falls on you. But, you don’t have to break your back to implement a compliant Emergency Preparedness Plan.
The answer is the successful completion of a Hazard Vulnerability Assessment (HVA).
**All 17 types of Medicare providers and suppliers are required to comply with these new guidelines including: Hospitals, RNHCIs, ACS, Hospices, PRTFs, PACEs, Transplant Centers, LTCs, ICF/IIDs, HHAs, CORFs, CAHs, ESRDs, CMHCs, OPOs, RHC/FQHCs, and Clinics/Rehab and Public Health Agencies as Providers of Outpatient PT and Speech Language Pathology.
Complying with the complexities of the new Emergency Preparedness rule isn’t easy. That's where CMS compliance expert, Steve Wilder, BA, CHSP, STS, can help. During his online training session, you’ll learn exactly how to implement a winning Hazard Vulnerability Assessment that can help you pass a CMS audit the first time with flying colors.
Here are just a few of the step-by-step compliance tactics you’ll receive by taking advantage of this, 90-minute online training session:
Even if you currently have an Emergency Preparedness Plan in place, it's essential that you update its components to ensure you're in compliance with the new plan requirements. Noncompliance with these new regulations can lead to you losing your standing as a Medicare and/or Medicaid provider or supplier, which will result in significant financial losses.
Don't risk it. Ensure that you’re in compliance with these new emergency preparedness regulations easier and with less hassle than you thought possible.
