About Topsfield
map
Topsfield Massachusetts is an area of rolling hills and meandering streams and has some of the highest land in Essex County. Topsfield has a rural nature and contains a typical New England town common.

The town is home to many acres of protected land and trails which includes Bradley Palmer State Park. It is an excellent choice for hiking and biking in the spring and summer and cross country skiing in the winter. Topsfield also has plenty of agricultural land and hosts the Topsfield Fair.

The Topsfield Fair is America’s oldest agricultural fair established in 1818 and held every October during harvest time. The Fair is chock full of agricultural exhibits as well as homemade baked goods and farm animals. There is also a largest pumpkin contest-always the most popular exhibit. It also has plenty for the kids including great stuff to eat and also a midway loaded with amusement park rides and games and a parade. The Topsfield Fair is a fun time for everyone and well worth the price of admission. Plan to spend a day there next October-you will be glad you did.

Historically, facilities have struggled with the task of Compliance Program development  and are notoriously missing the link to employee engagement and buy in that are the basis for all Compliance Programs. Compliance can be expensive - more expensive if NOT attended to directly by organization leaders.  The Harmony University LTPAC 3-Day Compliance HHI Certification Program (CHHI-CP) will provide you with the necessary skills to implement an effective and operational Compliance Program and Plan. Medicare has redefined the definition of fraud under LTPAC compliance regulations.  When a facility has not taken all the necessary steps to ensure that all of the technical and clinical qualifications are supported by your medical records to prevent improper billing, fines and penalties may be applied. A robust compliance program, with an active Compliance Officer, is the first objective to proactively monitor for all types of fraud and abuse while ensuring documentation of internal system oversight and response to findings.

A step by step approach will be detailed during the program so that you will be able to develop a program that will not only meet the regulatory requirements of your LTPAC,  but provide valuable insight and help your facility achieve and maintain compliance. Certification is obtained with a passing score on the online exam.    Recommended Audience:  Owners, Operators, Compliance Officers, CEO, CFO, Administrators, Nursing Management, Rehabilitation Management, Business Office Managers, Risk Managers, Safety Officers, IT Personnel    Objectives:    The learner will:  Identify key governmental documents  Identify 7 critical elements of an effective compliance program  State compliance risks the OIG is targeting in your setting  State 3 positive outcomes of compliance program  List 5 steps to successfully implement an effective compliance program  Identify 3 appropriate actions in response a practical real life  scenario   Goals:  This program will enable LTPAC professionals to provide quality healthcare through an understanding of Corporate Compliance in a skilled nursing facility.   Content:  Compliance History  OIG Work Plan Seven Elements for Compliance Program  The Cost of Non-Compliance Compliance Officer/Committee  HIPAA       Risk Assessment Protocol  Auditing & Monitoring Reporting & Investigation                     Response & Prevention    Education & Training  Enforcement & Discipline  Devising a Corporate Compliance Plan Strategies to Implement an Effective Compliance Program   CIA Examples Case Studies     Contact Hours:  NAB Nursing CCB AOTA (APTA* State-specific, please call 800.530.4413 for more information). *** You must be a current Harmony Healthcare International (HHI) Gold, Platinum or Silver C.A.R.E.
