Are You Ready for PDPM?
Your team can't afford to be unprepared for a payment change this big.
The Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) for traditional Medicare A residents is set to replace the current RUG-IV Medicare payment model Oct. 1, 2019. It’s important to understand PDPM and how it is significant to your organization.
How will your organization be impacted?
Under PDPM, your organization will feel financial and operational impacts. One major impact is that reimbursement will reduce over the length of the Medicare stay. These reimbusement changes will affect staffing and therapy costs. It will be critical for your organization to accurately report ICD-10 on section I and the hospital surgical procedure on section J of the MDS. Staff members will need education at the very least, but it may be necessary to have someone ICD-10 certified, which can take up to 9 months.
LeaderStat Consultants know the ins and outs of the new system.
Our expert consultants can help your team master the new model. They will help you understand how the clinical characteristics of the patient will determine reimbursement rather than therapy minutes. Changes to the MDS assessments may mean additional training for your team. Our consultants can educate your staff on the new assessments and help determine how to best redistribute staff hours under the new system. LeaderStat can help evaluate and retool your clinical staff so you are able to increase patient satisfaction and positive outcomes.
