The PowerPoint presentation from the Medicare Learning Network National call on Wednesday, October 5, 2016, “Understanding the Emergency Preparedness Final Rule” has also been posted to the MIHAN: Regional Network>Resource Sharing>CMS.
As announced, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized a rule to establish consistent emergency preparedness requirements for health care providers participating in Medicare and Medicaid, increase patient safety during emergencies, and establish a more coordinated response to natural and man-made disasters.

During this call, CMS will discuss the new requirements and revisions in the final rules, as well as how to plan for both natural and man-made disasters, while coordinating with other emergency preparedness systems.
