Episode Management Driving Clinical Impact of PDGM
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.
