PDGM Readiness Tool Kit

$ 299.00
On or after January 2020, the Patient Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) will replace the Home Health Prospective Payment System (HH PPS) as the methodology for calculating episode payments. Arguably, this is the biggest change to home health agency operations since the implementation of the Interim Prospective Payment System in 1998, which resulted in many home health agencies exiting the industry.
Lack of preparation and inability to anticipate the impact of that change likely caused many to close their doors. Learning from history, agencies are strongly advised to plan by assessing readiness, educating staff and making necessary operational/administrative changes before implementation of PDGM. Doing so now will improve an agency’s current business practices, thereby improving productivity and profitability in the short term, while positioning the agency for a smoother transition to PDGM.
The PDGM Readiness Toolkit is an agency’s step-by-step guide to successful implementation through proper planning, preparation, communication and training.
