The Risks and Rewards of Quality of Informed Consent Documents Measure

In late April 2017, CMS announced seven new proposed measures to be included in the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program. One of the seven new measures is the “Quality of Informed Consent Documents for Hospital-Performed Elective Procedures” measure. This webinar is designed to prepare compliance administrators, risk management professionals and care providers for the potential implementation of this measure.

Join Fay A. Rozovsky, JD, MPH, and author of "Consent to Treatment: A Practical Guide" and Timothy Kelly, a 30-year veteran of the medical device and medical software fields, as they:

  • Explain CMS’ rationale for the development of the Quality of Informed Consent Documents measure.
  • Describe all elements of the abstraction tool that is the foundation of the measure.
  • Discuss potential risk exposures emanating from the new Quality of Informed Consent Document Quality Measure.
  • Provide practical guidance on revising informed consent forms and processes to meet the minimum expected requirements of this measure and mitigate risk exposures.
