Case managers and social workers need to maintain compliance in a number of areas directly related to utilization management and discharge planning. Both the Joint Commission (and other regulatory bodies) as well as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are auditing hospitals and case management departments for compliance with the Conditions of Participation as well as other regulatory requirements. Every case management professional needs to know how these requirements impact their professional practice.

Compliance Measures for RN and Social Work Case Managers


As case managers we must be aware of the myriad of compliance issues that we must adhere to in our daily practice.  Never has this been more important to our work as case managers then it is now.  Our ability to remain compliant has become an element of audits from accrediting bodies such as the Joint Commission as well as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).  It is the right thing to do for patients as well. 

This program will review the compliance issues that most greatly impact your practice such as the 2-midnight Rule, the NOTICE Act, HINNs, The Important Message and others. The Joint Commission is now monitoring these issues when they have deemed status from Medicare, so your compliance is critical to a good Joint Commission survey outcome.  This program will help you to identify where you may have compliance practice gaps as well as how to fix them.

Session Highlights:
  • Understand the compliance issues required under the Conditions of Participation for Utilization Management and Discharge Planning.
  • Describe your responsibilities as they relate to Observation and the 2-Midnight Rule.

  • Explain how the patient choice lists are used.
