Establishing an effective compliance framework is a critical agency-wide program. Best practice focus should center upon ensuring compliance with applicable state and federal laws, Medicare & Medicaid COPs, professional standards of practice, and implementing systems and processes that prevent fraud and abuse. We believe it is critical to address “overreach” and a compliance culture that creates internal obstacles that can stunt organizational growth and/or delay admitting appropriate hospice patients.
Our 70-point compliance checklist, accompanying organizational survey and onsite compliance analysis, will evaluate all elements and identify any risk areas. From our analysis, we will then provide a set of recommendations and operational implementation plans.
