(Recorded Webinar) CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule Webinar Series: Policies & Procedures - Integrated Health Systems (September 2017)

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) established emergency preparedness requirements (aka CMS EP Rule) that went into effect on November 16, 2016. Medicare and Medicaid participating providers and suppliers, including health centers, must comply with the EP Rule requirements by November 15, 2017.
The new rule is far-reaching and requires providers to conduct annual risk assessments and develop emergency plans. In addition, providers must develop and implement policies and procedures to successfully execute their emergency plans, while addressing risks identified during their most recent assessment phase. Providers must also establish a communications plan to communicate and coordinate patient care within and outside their facilities during an emergency. Finally, providers must demonstrate ongoing training and testing of their emergency management programs, including conducting exercises.
Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP (FTLF) and Primary Care Emergency Preparedness Network (PCEPN) invite you to participate in a four-part webinar series addressing the Rule's main core elements. Each webinar session will be devoted to one core element and will provide information on specific requirements in that area, as well as practical tips for the implementation. Additional useful resources (i.e. links, documents, templates) will also be provided.
