Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) Education

2020 PDGM National 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 will co-host 12 one-day summits across the United States in partnership with the NAHC Forum of States. These will occur March-April 2020. Learn more

In addition, each webinar will offer an open forum where participants can share and gain insights with HHFMA experts about what is working and not working in the early weeks of PDGM. Learn more

Last year, we launched 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.”
