Compliance education is a critical part of healthcare staff training to improve quality of care, boost staff knowledge and resilience, and reduce risk for the organization. MedBridge compliance courses align with applicable laws and regulations and include oversight by relevant healthcare consultants.
This article provides recommendations for annual home health compliance training to meet federal regulations. Additional course options are also provided that may be beneficial to include in your annual training, depending on your patient population. You should customize these tracks to fit your organization’s needs and meet state regulations by adding or removing MedBridge courses or including your organization’s custom content.
To assign this content to staff, create a new Knowledge Track and search for the relevant courses below. These can then be assigned automatically to all staff or a subset of employees at your organization. For more information about building Knowledge Tracks, check out Getting Started With the MedBridge LMS.
Please see MedBridge’s compliance catalog for other relevant courses, such as ones that address state-specific topics.
