Product Description

Tighten Up Your Hospital Contract Management

Both CMS and the Joint Commission have ramped up their scrutiny of contracts. The Joint Commission has a standard on contract management and a contract services tracer. And CMS recently issued a memo pointing out deficiencies in hospitals—with many failings related to contract management. CMS has also added a section to the final worksheets for surveyors to address contract management issues specifically. Clearly, your contracted services are under the microscope!

Learn to avoid contract management errors that will earn the feds’ ire in this information-packed webinar with expert speaker Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD. She will help you answer the question: Why has your hospital contracted with certain entities? And she’ll explain how to evaluate those contracted services to ensure that patients are still receiving the highest quality of care.

After attending this webinar event, you will understand all the contract requirements for hospitals accredited by the Joint Commission—a standard that’s been amended every year for the last three years. You will also get the scoop on the CMS hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs) contract requirements, which every hospital that accepts Medicare or Medicaid reimbursement must follow. And you’ll learn about the standards for hospitals accredited by DNV-GL, which are closely cross-walked to the CMS CoPs.

  • Comply with the Joint Commission contract standard in the leadership chapter.
  • Discover the CMS hospital CoP section for contracted services.
