Hot off the Presses: Brand New Standards for Case Managers & Discharge Planners in All Practice Settings
A 90-Minute Lunch & Learn Audio Conference with Elizabeth E. Hogue, Esp.
The Case Management Society of America (CMSA) has published revised national standards of care that govern the practice of case management/discharge planning. These standards apply to all practice settings, including hospitals, skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), home health agencies, assisted living facilities (ALFs), private duty agencies, hospices and HME companies. A key emphasis in the healthcare industry today is collaboration, which must include effective case management, especially for care transitions.
Join this teleconference to find out what case managers/discharge planners are now required to do and the standards that will likely be applied to them in disciplinary procedures before state licensure boards. Since these standards are time-consuming and demanding to meet, what can case managers/discharge planners do to effectively meet them, especially when resources are scarce? What legal and ethical aspects of the standards are important for case managers/discharge planners to understand? The emphasis during the teleconference will be on practical strategies to provide effective case management services.

Smith & Nephew Webinar: "Current and Future Challenges Within the Healthcare Environment: How a Single Use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) System May Be the Solution"
with Kristi Huebner, RN, BSN, CSW, Professional Education Manager, Smith & Nephew and Scott Reid, Vice President Healthcare Strategy & Reimbursement, Healthcare Systems, Smith & Nephew
With an ever changing healthcare landscape, everyday there is an increased need to select products that are patient friendly, clinically effective and cost effective. In addition, there's an added pressure to streamline processes and simplify product offerings while keeping training and conversion cost down. Plus there's a quickly growing demand to reduce readmissions caused by surgical site infections and surgical site complications as the consequences thereafter can be enormous.
Join us as we introduce an innovative solution to your NPWT needs. The PICO System is a single use negative pressure device that offers all the same effectiveness of traditional NPWT in a small, discreet, pocket-sized system.
Listen as we review how this small yet powerful system may change how you view NPWT and how it may meet your needs for today and the expectations of tomorrow.
Topics to be discussed:
- Readmission penalties, VBP, ACO
- Medicare HHA changes for single-use NPWT in 2017
- Environmental influences for wound care
- The use and role of single patient use disposable NPWT devices today and in the future
This is a sponsored presentation by Smith & Nephew and does not offer CEs.
