OIG  TO FOCUS ON BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR LTC EMPLOYEES

OIG will be reviewing procedures and costs related to conducting background checks on prospective LTC employees and other workers who would have direct access to patients.  The background checks are intended to ensure facilities don't hire individuals who are considered excluded providers by the OIG (e.g., convicted felons with histories of violent behaviors or other abusive actions).

New Bill Could Expand Home Health Telemedicine

  bipartisan bill that would expand telemedicine services and remote patient monitoring (RPM) through Medicare is making headway in Congress with a projected cost savings of $1.8 billion over the next decade. The legislation could also help cut down the more than 7 billion miles home care workers traveled in 2013 for patient visits.

With the goal of improving quality care and cost savings, the Creating Opportunities Now for Necessary and Effective Care Technologies, the act will expand the use of telecommunications technologies to deliver health care, health information or health education over a distance. The bill is sponsored by both Democrats and Republicans from the House and Senate and was introduced February 3, 2016
