PDGM In Real Time: Clinical Management of Patient Episode

PDGM in Real Time:
Clinical Management of Patient Episode

Wednesday, March 11, 2020; 1:00-2:00 pm Eastern

Webinar Description:

This webinar will explain current issues agencies are experiencing including utilization and visit planning, missed visits, interdisciplinary communication, and wound care struggles, followed by solutions that are working including interdisciplinary team meetings and case manager to clinical team leader hand off calls. We predict a lot of LUPAs in February and will incorporate our findings into our recommendations.

Series Description:

The Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) represents the most significant change in the Medicare home health program in the 21st Century. It radically changes the Medicare payment methodology, including the unit of payment, the case mix adjuster, Low Utilization Payment Adjustment standards, and payment for Non-Routine Medical Supplies.

We’re pleased to present a series of six free webinars, that address a variety of PDGM-essential topics, combined with an open forum where participants share and gain insights with Home Care & Hospice Financial Managers Association (HHFMA) experts about what is working and not working in the early weeks of PDGM. These webinars along with the PDGM 2020 National Summits, which start at the end of March, are designed to enable home health agencies to achieve “high performer” status through continuous  operational improvements in financial, clinical, business analytics, and administrative operations as PDGM unfolds.
