The webinar will provide an overview of the Phase 3 Requirements of Participation (RoPs), the purpose and intent of these changes, and steps centers can take to prepare during a time of uncertainty and continual change as we await Phase 3 guidance from CMS. The webinar will further highlight current CMS priorities and the changes included in CMS’s proposed rule on changes to promote efficiency and transparency in the RoPs. Finally, it will provide information on AHCA tools and resources to assist centers in implementing these requirements.
Learning objectives include:
1) Participants will recognize key changes to the federal Requirements of Participation that go into effect on November 28, 2019 (RoP Phase 3).
2) Participants will identify actions to take within their centers to prepare for Phase 3 implementation while we await additional CMS guidance and resources available to help them comply.
3) Participants will understand how current CMS priorities and the pending proposed rule revising the RoPs impact their preparation for Phase 3.
