The Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) went into effect on January 1, 2020. This is the most significant change to the Medicare home health reimbursement structure since the introduction of the Prospective Payment System (PPS) in 2000. The new payment model has dramatically impacted agency operations, processes, and performance.
January 2023 brings even more issues with rate changes for home health and the impending Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) nationwide expansion. This four-part webinar series will discuss key areas, strategies, and processes in assisting an agency in staying ahead of PDGM-related changes and reimbursement rates. This program will focus on best episode management and process improvement practices including the referral, intake, and scheduling processes, timely documentation, and physician and patient communication strategies — all of which are required to more tightly manage care within the 30-day payment period.
