CMS has completed a comprehensive update of the home health conditions of participation (CoPs). The updated CoPs enhances the clinicians accountability around patient’s rights, care planning and coordination, infection control, and emergency preparedness. How care is provided and documented will need to be examined and changes implemented in every home health agency in order to ensure compliancy with the new rules. This webinar is the first step in identifying specific areas, which require work flow changes by the clinician at the patient level.


  • Understand the new patient rights element, including ways to be compliant when providing those rights to the patient/family.
  • Identify the elements required in writing to ensure effective coordination of care; visit schedule, medication schedule, treatments, pertinent instructions, and name of the clinical manager.
  • Write and incorporate patient centered goals when creating their patient plan of care.
  • Integrate the new CoP requirements to their admission, transfer, and discharge process.
