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?
Identify your facility's risk exposure for each new payment component
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 your data, analyze them and highlight areas that will be most impacted by PDPM
Create effective system changes based on your company assessment to help your team in the implementation of these new rules
