This webinar will cover complexities related to how to keep your clients compliant — and avoid funding losses.

The Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Providers and Suppliers established standards for a new level of communication between healthcare providers and EMS. The intent of this rule is to ensure the coordination of all patients' care during a major disaster. The heightened standard of communication requires providers to connect with individuals and entities including patients, physicians, state and local health departments, emergency personnel, patients' families, and transportation. This presentation will explore the complexities related to this new regulation by discussing the background of the rule, challenges with implementation, and practical tips for compliance.

E. Ann Jeschke, PhD

Bio-Ethics Conslutant

Doctorally trained bio-ethics consultant specializing in military medicine. With over 20 years of inter-professional employment, education, training, and research experience, I seek to collaborate in qualitative research, program evaluation, gap analysis, end user analysis, or theoretical assessment of challenges that occur when attempting to provide care for military service members. My strength lies in outside of the box thinking that relies on questioning historical and philosophical assumptions that are embedded in policies, programs, and practices and thereafter performing end-user analysis that allows me to help bridge various stakeholders that participate in the development of best practices in the clinical practice and provision of medicine.

As both a leader and member of various public awareness team, I have developed a keen ability to build team consensus around a strategic vision as well as mediate the various voices of different stakeholders in the research and development process. My diplomatic acumen allows me to not only welcome input from a diverse range of experts associated with any project from local community members to local, national, and international politician, but to also distill the various viewpoints into a common goal. By upholding the importance of all team members values, knowledge, and skills, I am able to galvanize and energize members around objectives that can both meet the needs of end users for whom a project is intended as well as business, academic, and policy experts who support the development process.
