How Medicare Payment Should Change Performance Webinar

February 4th, 2016
10:00am to 11:30am

Let’s get this right! With the decision by Medicare to begin paying for advance care planning in January 2016, expectations will change about advance care planning the importance of establishing goals of care, especially for those facing life limiting illness. Hospice and Palliative care professionals need to hone skills and take advantage of tools and processes that ensure effective outcomes. You may not get rich, but you do need to get it right.

The presentation will explore the duties and obligations of clinical staff in:
• Differentiating fiduciary obligations of agents, and limitations of certain powers of attorney
• Understanding the differences in process and documentation in the advance care planning process
• Clarifying effective processes for eliciting goals of care
• Translating goals into actionable physician orders (e.g. executing Outside of Hospital DNRs and Transportable Physician Order for Patient Preferences)
