CMS made a change effective November 29, 2019 regarding History and Physicals. Healthy outpatients may not be required to have a history and physical. Many hospitals are confused over what is required by hospitals in the CMS hospital Conditions of Participation Manual and by the Joint Commission standards. In fact, CMS noted in a past memo, that they frequently receive questions on this and in response CMS issues a clarification statement. The process to do will be explained including a required policy, Medical Staff and Board approval, revised medical staff bylaws and more. The webinar by industry expert Laura A. Dixon, BS, JD, RN will discuss what should be in the policy.
By attending this program, you can learn what is required to be in the history and physicals and how to meet compliance with both the CMS hospital conditions of participation and with the Joint Commission standards. CMS has five separate tag numbers. CMS has also issued a deficiency memo so information will be given on how many hospitals received deficiencies in this area. This will also include the standards for critical access hospitals.
The Joint Commission has many frequently asked questions on H&Ps that will be discussed including delegation of H&P, H&P for outpatient procedures, medical students doing H&Ps, podiatrist or dentist doing H&P, prenatal assessment, update requirements content of the H&P and authentication of H&Ps. Hospitals need to ensure that hospital policies and procedure meet the H&P requirements. Medical staff by-laws must also comply with the regulations and interpretive guidelines and standards.
