CMS made its biggest change in 20 years by replacing the existing case-mix classification methodology—the Resource Utilization Groups, Version IV (RUG-IV)—with the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM). Although it's not very different in concept than last year's proposed Resident Classification System (RCS), there's a lot more to it than a just a new name. As a healthcare provider, especially if you are an SNF (Skilled Nursing Facilities) provider, it is imperative for you to learn PDPM inside out to stay on the right side of compliance.
Learn the specifics of the PDPM model structure versus the case-mix groups in this informative webinar by CMS and PDPM expert Renee Kinder. Kinder will also delve into the history of why CMS is looking to change the current RUGs system to the PDPM Model. Being a direct technical expert for CMS, she carries with herself insider information on the development of the PDPM model. Among other things, she will also share the best practices for interdisciplinary coding within PDPM.
After attending this webinar, you will be confident in your ability to implement the PDPM best practices in team coding smoothly and successfully by October 2019 implementation—specific to the categories mentioned under the session highlights below.
