Quality is ubiquitous in healthcare, but it’s also an important theme in our professional and personal lives. At the 2017 Home Care and Hospice Conference and Expo, we’ll explore what quality looks like in patient care, our workplaces and at home. Here’s a closer look at what you can expect.
Quality of Care
When the quality of care provided is sub-par or goes against evidenced-based best practices, patients may suffer. This may also drive up healthcare costs and could result in penalties from CMS for non-adherence to its Conditions of Participation (CoPs) for Medicare and Medicaid patients. If you want to learn how to improve healthcare delivery across the care continuum, choose from nearly 20 informative education sessions on quality assurance topics. There’s also a special, add-on preconference about the new CoPs for home health and a related keynote speech by Laura Adams, CEO of the Rhode Island Quality Institute.
Quality at Work
One’s work environment plays a large role in their job satisfaction levels and also on mental and physical health. If your employees work in an environment that is constantly stressful or unsafe they could suffer negative consequences. Also, if you are short-staffed, that could compromise your organization’s ability to provide proper care. Learn how to attract and retain top-notch employees, and how to grow your business, by attending classes on business development, talent acquisition, and staff development. Keynote speaker Juliet Funt, owner and founder of WhiteSpace at Work, will teach you how to make the most of your work day by learning the difference between meaningless activity and true productivity.
Quality at Home
Many factors influence quality at home including our overall health and well-being, finances, and family situation. When we are happy at home we are often more relaxed and can be our best selves in all areas of our lives. Learn how to improve your quality of life from best-selling author John O’Leary. He was given a one-percent chance to live after suffering burns over his entire body when he was nine years old, and his story is sure to move you.
