On September 18, 2014, Congress passed the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act of 2014 (the IMPACT Act). The Act requires among, other significant activities, the reporting of standardized patient assessment data with regard to quality measures, resource use, and other measures. It further specifies that the data elements be standardized and interoperable, so as to allow for the exchange of the data among the post-acute care providers and other providers.
Join Sharon Hamilton RN, BA, MS, NLCP-C, CFDS, Briggs’ Clinical Consultant, Thursday, April 12th from 12 PM to 1 PM, for a brief review of the Act’s mandates and to develop an understanding of how the 2018 Conditions of Participation support and are related to the next big change, OASIS-D in 2019.
During this webinar Sharon will:
- Briefly explain the requirements of the IMPACT Act
- Discuss how and why the standardization of the
post-acute providers data (elements) is necessary
to support interoperability
- Identify three examples of past changes in the
home health assessment tool, based on the
IMPACT Act mandates, including the implementation
of the 2018 Conditions of Participation
