Why Should you Attend
The new rule is sweeping and requires providers and suppliers to use an "all-hazards" approach when conducting a risk assessment to develop an emergency plan. Providers must develop and implement policies and procedures to successfully execute their plan and address risks identified in the assessment. They must also establish a communications plan, as well as have an effective training and testing program in place to ensure ongoing improvement planning. Healthcare providers and suppliers participating in Medicare and Medicaid programs must fully understand the scope and complexity of the revisions to ensure full compliance. In this webinar we will analyze who will be impacted and how, and the implications for participating in Medicare and Medicaid. The webinar will also provide suggested steps to comply with the new regulations.

Topic Background
This final rule establishes national emergency preparedness requirements for Medicare- and Medicaid-participating providers and suppliers to plan adequately for both natural and man-made disasters, and coordinate with federal, state, tribal, regional, and local emergency preparedness systems. It will also assist providers and suppliers to adequately prepare to meet the needs of patients, residents, clients, and participants during disasters and emergency situations. Despite some variations, the regulations will provide consistent emergency preparedness requirements, enhance patient safety during emergencies for persons served by Medicare and Medicaid participating facilities, and establish a more coordinated and defined response to natural and man-made disasters.
