PDGM: Shifting Therapy from Volume to Value

November 13, 2019 11 am Pacific / 12 pm Mountain / 1 pm Central / 2 pm Eastern 90 Minutes

With the new Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) quickly approaching, therapists must reinvent their focus from number of visits, to the value they bring to agency outcomes.

This session will describe the value to revenue through contributions to accurate OASIS coding; the value to cost effectiveness through patient engagement and good care coordination; and the value to clinical outcomes through using appropriate skill sets for our most common home health diagnoses and conditions.
