PDPM ACADEMY FOR SNFS - JAN. 30, 2019

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

AHCA's PDPM Academy

GET READY NOW... PDPM IS COMING

•   The new patient driven payment model (PDPM) begins October 1, 2019

•   Patient clinical characteristics in totality will determine payment 

•   Quick and highly accurate assessment and diagnosis will be critical

•   Payment will no longer be focused on therapy minutes and ADLs but will rely on over 180 MDS item fields

•   Failing to accurately code patient needs will have a significant impact on adequate and accurate payment for high quality care

•   Staff roles will change to operate effectively under PDPM


PDPM Academy is Both In-Person Training and Continuing Updates and Support
