CHA members can now learn about the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) discharge planning final rule in a free on-demand webinar. The 30-minute webinar offers a high-level overview of the rule and solicits requests for more information and clarification to inform CHA’s ongoing advocacy with CMS.

Provisions of the final rule — which address discharge planning requirements for hospitals, critical access hospitals, and home health agencies — went into effect Nov. 29, 2019. The webinar is recommended for case management leaders in acute and post-acute care settings: leaders of post-acute care services (including inpatient rehabilitation, long-term acute care, skilled nursing, and home health), as well as hospital and health system COOs, CNOs, and leaders in quality management and compliance.
