The Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM): checking in after implementation

The Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) was implemented for Medicare fee for service beneficiaries on Oct. 1, 2019, which marks a significant change to the way skilled nursing providers are reimbursed. Now that PDPM is effective, it is a good practice to review what your facility has implemented so that you can determine which systems and processes are effective, and where your facility needs to do some additional work.

Listen to our informative, on-demand webinar for a discussion about PDPM findings from provider experiences that will help serve as a reminder about the items that need to be addressed after implementation.

This webinar provides you and your facility team with a review of items that need to be addressed now that PDPM is effective, including:

  • Additions to the triple check process
  • Medical record documentation support
  • Minimum data set (MDS) assessment coding data collection
  • Interim payment assessment (IPA)
  • Capturing the medical diagnoses for non-therapy ancillary (NTA) component
  • And more

Key takeaways

  • Understand implementation challenges for skilled nursing facility providers
  • How to know that implementation is effective and efficient
  • How to address items that have not been effective in your implementation
