Patient Driven Payment Model Preparation

Written by Anne Bongo

Everyone is talking about and preparing for The Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM)This is the new Medicare payment rule for Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs). Of course there is panic in the air for some companies, causing more damage to the already confused team.We are moving much closer toward a payment model focused on the patient’s unique needs, rather than the volume of services provided.  Let’s make sure your team is equipped with the resources they need. What can you do to prepare as a company?

Manage Risk

Identify your facility's risk exposure for each new payment component

Assess Clinical Complexity

Access facility’s clinical complexity through your ICD-10 codes and collaborate with your company physicians to ensure to meet the 5-day MDS deadline

Gather Data

Gather your data, analyze them and highlight areas that will be most impacted by PDPM

Process & Systems

Create effective system changes based on your company assessment to help your team in the implementation of these new rules
