The provider of infusion services is required to ensure that clinicians who perform the services under his or her direction are properly trained and competent to perform the infusion – whether in the office or home setting. Evidence of the training and competency assessment should be maintained in the provider’s records. The new Home Infusion Benefit codifies the requirements in the release of the CY 2019 Medicare Home Health Final Rule (CMS-1689-FC). It is now a requirement that the billing provider maintain evidence of training and competency in its records, not just the entity with whom the provider contracts for clinical services. As accreditation standards are released, the industry can expect even more scrutiny of the provider’s training and competency processes!
MJS & Associates, LLC, in concert with its soon to be released “Home Infusion Services” manual, announces a comprehensive training and competency evaluation program to go live April 10, 2019. The web-based training consists of a series of YOUTUBE videos presented by the MJS infusion RNs and provided on the MJS private YOUTUBE channel. Each module will provide information that is consistent with the Home Infusion Services manual chapters including, but not limited to, safety considerations, types of infusions, assessment strategies for home infusion capabilities, clinical procedures, complications, documentation standards, teaching strategies and much more. Each module will require approximately 60 minutes of attendee’s time and will conclude with an on-line competency test for certification purposes. Successful completion of each module will be documented in an on-line certificate available for immediate release to the attendee. Continuing education credits are currently pending.
