Credits: None available.

Description

On July 18, 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published a Proposed Rule in the Federal Register that would significantly revise the regulation regarding Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI). CMS will not issue a Final Rule until sometime after the public comment period closes, which is September 16, 2019. This session explores the proposed changes to the regulation that will occur towards the end of 2019.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain what the federal regulation requires from a QAPI program and QAA committee
  • Describe the “Five Elements” of QAPI
  • Understand the medical director’s role in QAPI and the QAA committee
  • Explore the case law regarding “privilege” and discovery of the QAA committee’s “internal documents” and learn how to maintain protection from discovery by plaintiffs’ lawyers and surveyors of confidential and privileged resident information
