The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) made changes to the hospital Conditions of Participation (CoP) in November 2019 including changes to the requirements of history and physicals for healthy outpatients, discharge planning, and access to medical records.  

This program will cover in detail the CMS regulations and interpretive guidelines for medical records. There will also be a brief discussion of the pandemic 1135 waivers as the waivers affect medical records. This program will also cover some information on HIPAA from the Office of Civil Rights, including the difference between patient access verses when an authorization is needed. Lastly, there will also be a discussion on the Joint Commission, which recently changed many of their standards to comply with the CMS CoP requirements.
