CMS made changes to the hospital conditions of participation in November 2019 from two separate sets of federal regulations. The changes include the history and physicians for healthy outpatients and discharge planning, specifically, access to medical records. This program will cover in detail the CMS regulations and interpretive guidelines for medical records. Important sections to be covered are verbal orders, history & physicals, access to medical records and more. This program will also cover some information on HIPAA from the Office of Civil rights, including the difference between patient access vs. when an authorization is needed. Hospitals are now being fined if patients are given access to their records in a timely manner. Joint Commission standards on medical records will also be discussed.
