Hospice & Palliative Care Association of New York State - Event Information

Event Name:2019 Hospice Compliance Certificate Program
Description:Successful programs today need to know the basics of healthcare compliance, including developing a compliance program, compliance risk assessment, compliance policies and procedures, and anonymous reporting.  The importance of the Stark law, the Yates memo, anti-kickback statutes, and inducements for referrals and incentives for marketing will also be covered.   It is critical to also look at hospice-specific topics to apply back home, including a detailed review of the federal hospice regulations including Conditions of Payment, conducting an internal audit, looking at organizational ethics related to compliance, and audit scrutiny.  The two-day course promises to be just what those interested in hospice compliance are looking for – hospice specific compliance content, up to the minute compliance updates, and tools you can use as soon as you get back home. 


By the end of the session, participants will:

  1. Identify survey deficiencies for 2018 and tools to evaluate your hospice’s compliance with the Conditions of Participation.
  2. List components and structure of an internal compliance audit, complete with topics and identified staff.
  3. Review components of organizational ethics related to compliance risk.
  4. Identify strategies for external auditors, including attorney-client privilege and how to prepare to respond.
