Episode Management Driving Clinical Impact of PDGM

October 09, 2019 11 am Pacific / 12 pm Mountain / 1 pm Central / 2 pm Eastern 90 Minutes

The Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) is driven by a multitude of clinical factors that calculate the 30-day payment. Though the payment model is changing, agencies can manage the impact PDGM has on the agency through effective clinical management strategies.

This webinar describes Episode Management as a model for Clinical Managers to:

  • Ensure OASIS data and diagnosis coding accuracy
  • Develop effective and cost-efficient interdisciplinary plans of care
  • Provide oversight to utilization and LUPA management over the two 30-day PDGM payment periods

Episode Management cultivates clinical reasoning to manage and optimize a patient’s progress toward outcomes while holding clinicians accountable for the episode of care.
