PDGM In Real Time: PDGM Coding
Feb 19 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

PDGM in Real Time:
Coding in PDGM

Wednesday, February 19, 2020; 1:00-2:00 pm Eastern

Webinar Description:

How is ICD-10 coding working with PDGM? What about the HIPPS calculation in coding the primary diagnosis and comorbidities? What has changed in documentation review and your revenue cycle? Are orders being signed expeditiously? Do you believe coding should precede the actual visit to support proper documentation and questionable encounters? Documentation, diagnosis coding, care planning and care coordination are at the top of the list of best practice clinical strategies that have been employed. This session focuses on the coding lessons learned in January 2020 in blending clinical practice and financial management to achieve the best patient and business outcomes in the new world created by PDGM.

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.
