This webinar is not only significant for you and your staff from a compliance with new CMS discharge planning standards standpoint, but also to ensure your hospital receives optimal reimbursement. Effective discharge planning can help prevent unnecessary readmissions, and therefore help you avoid the financial penalties associated with them. Hospitals that have a higher readmission rate for pneumonia, heart failure and MI (myocardial infarction) have already forfeited $280 million dollars since October 1, 2012.

Every hospital that accepts Medicare and Medicaid must be in compliance with the new CMS discharge planning guidelines. These standards must be followed for all patients and not just Medicare or Medicaid recipients. Order today to ensure your compliance with the new standards, get vital information on optimizing your reimbursement and learn how to avoid financial penalties associated with unnecessary readmissions.

Any person serving on a hospital committee to redesign the discharge process to prevent unnecessary readmissions should also attend.
