The Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) is set to replace RUGs-IV on Oct. 1, 2019. This is not just a “tweak” to the current payment system, but a wholesale change! The impact of moving from a volume-based system to a resident characteristics system has a far-reaching impact on facility payment with potential for significant changes in care protocols. This four-hour intensive PDPM training will unpack the six different payment components, and explain the interim payment assessment, the interrupted stay policy, and the adjusted payment factors. The session will help you survive and thrive in PDPM by understanding the need for strong EHR systems to track ICD-10-CM diagnosis, capture accurate status of residents, and implement case management strategies. In the PDPM, collaboration between nursing, therapy, billing, and technology is critical. This workshop will map out the needed elements to success.
- Understand the five case-mix adjusted components that make up the PDPM system and identify the items that impact each of the components
- Review how PDPM changes the PPS Assessment schedule, including the Interim Payment Assessment and the interrupted stay process
- Detail the critical elements of ICD-10 coding in the PDPM
- Describe how PDPM impacts care models, use of therapy, the role of restorative nursing, and more
- Review the qualifiers for Traditional Medicare A and how they interact with payment levels
- Better grasp the PDPM through reviewing case studies
The PDPM Workshop provides four hours of nursing CEs if you registered for just the PDPM Workshop. Otherwise, the four hours of nursing CEs are included in the overall hours for RAC-CT (22.5), RAC-CTA (22.5), and RAC-CT Recertification (7.5).
