NAHC to Host 6 New Free Webinars: PDGM in Real Time

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) will present a new six part webinar series, PDGM in Real Time, that will cover the essential topics of the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) and also feature an open forum in which attendees can have their specific questions answered by the top PDGM experts in the home health industry. Every webinar in the series is free to NAHC members and non-members alike. REGISTER NOW!

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.

Participants in the webinar series will 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.

NAHC to Host 12 New Summits on PDGM Lessons Learned

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), in partnership with the NAHC Forum of State Associations, the Home Care & Hospice Financial Managers Association, and the Home Care Technology Association of America, will sponsor 12 one-day National Summits across the country, from March 30 through April 14.

Success Comes From Continuous Operational Improvements: Lessons Learned in PDGM 2020 Q1

These Summits will focus on PDGM-related continuous performance improvement in financial, clinical, data analytics, and administrative operations. These are not “run-of-the-mill” PDGM programs. Instead, these programs are based on real-time, nationwide experiences and data that provide the nationally-renowned expert faculty with the deepest understanding about how to achieve success in PDGM. Comparable in format to the intensely valuable 2019 Summits, the PDGM 2020 National Summits will be your key to thriving under PDGM. The major difference is that PDGM is now affecting every Medicare home health agency and will have the experiences and data to fully determine the ingredients for success.

Faculty for these one-day programs once again will be comprised of leading national experts from top home health consulting firms who will provide you with the tools and knowledge to:

  • Gain a better understanding of what it takes to be a winner in PDGM;
  • Identify key steps that are proving successful in managing services under PDGM;
  • Recognize the actions that create unnecessary risks for your HHA; and
  • Determine the early clinical and financial benchmarks that distinguish the successful HHA from others.

Attending one of these summits will fully prepare you to undertake any needed course corrections in your PDGM management, along with reinforcing the actions that you have already taken to ensure a positive outcome throughout 2020 and beyond.
