Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) Education

PDGM 2020 Virtual Summits

PDGM, implemented on January 1, 2020, is revolutionizing the payment methodology for all Medicare Home Health Agencies in the United States. We’ve developed several education tools you need to ensure your agency will make a smooth transition.

As a follow up to last year’s successful one-day summits, we co-hosted one-day, virtual summits on April 28 and April 29 in partnership with the NAHC Forum of States. Visit the PDGM 2020 Virtual Summits website today to learn more!

PDGM Webinar Series

The 2020 PDGM in Real Time Webinar Series allowed registrants the opportunity to participate in a series of six free webinars, that addressed a variety of PDGM-essential topics. In addition, each webinar allowed for an open forum where participants shared and gained valuable insights with HHFMA experts about what is working and not working in the early weeks of PDGM. These webinars are now available on-demand. Learn more

In 2019, we offered a webinar series for those who already have a clear understanding of PDGM and will hone in on specific topics related to PDGM at a more granular level. The series has been recorded and is available on demand. Dependent on your needs, you can register for a single webinar or the entire series. Learn more

“We could not have prepared for this major payment and process change without the direction NAHC provided. We used the NAHC Webinars, updates with the experts, conferences, summits, physician education, tools, etc. to steer our way through the preparation stage of PDGM. Without NAHC’s resources and the NAHC leadership team sharing their expertise, we are certain we would be much less prepared for PDGM and more at risk as an agency.”
