January 27, 2016:  Navigating Bundled Payment Programs: Lessons Learned
Presenter:  Kathleen Weissberg from Select Rehabilitation
Considering the magnitude of participation by skilled nursing facilities in bundled payment arrangements and available data, we have an opportunity to look retrospectively at what has worked well in bundled arrangements and what areas may require improvement.  Using this information and “lessons learned” from participation, SNF providers can look to the future of health care delivery with a more positive outlook for success.
This training program will review the background and rationale behind bundled payments.  Using available data, this session provides lessons learned from the initiative and strategies and tactics for participating in bundled payment initiatives.

February 18, 2016:  System Improvement Webinar Series:  Safety and Supervision (F323)
Presenter:  Liz Davidson from LeadingAge Iowa
F323, Free of Accident Hazards/Supervision/Devices, is one of the most frequently cited deficiencies nationally.  The intent of the requirement is to ensure that the long-term care (LTC) provider maintains an environment free from hazards and provides appropriate supervision for each resident to prevent avoidable accidents.  Implementation of key systems and processes can avert potential accidents, improve quality of care, and boost compliance with the regulation.  The implementation of key systems and processes helps improve the quality of care delivered and increase compliance.

Registrants for this webinar will be given the opportunity to submit questions on the topic in advance of the program.
