Discharge Planning Guide: tools for compliance
Discharge planning has long been a challenge for organizations, but expected revisions to Medicare's Conditions of Participation(CoP) will increase the burden on healthcare facilities, especially in case management departments, by expanding the number and type of discharge plans that must be created. Discharge Planning Guide: Tools for Compliance, Fourth Edition, is a comprehensive resource on the changes to the CoPs, which are set to revamp discharge planning not just for hospitals, but for postacute providers as well. This book provides guidance on developing a discharge planning workflow during a time when hospitals must create discharge plans for a larger percentage of patients than ever. Essential functions of discharge planning, including patient choice, health literacy, communicating with caregivers, and delivery of notices, are presented in a clear and concise format. The book also covers the connection between discharge planning and the revenue cycle, including payment rules, billing and coding implications, and the appropriate use of several claims forms and condition codes.
