An Overview of PDGM: Preparing for 2020

Post-Acute Care

About This Webinar

From reducing claims period from 60 to 30 days, to introducing a 14-day look-back mechanism to determine patient source, the Patient Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) is the biggest change that has faced home health agencies in nearly two decades. It is motivating a paradigm shift from a volume-driven approach to one that focuses on the patient and will drastically affect the way Medicare home health agencies operate, starting in 2020.

Watch this webinar to get an overview of the PDGM structure and operation along with a review of the concerns and opportunities triggered by PDGM. It helps form the base of understanding of PDGM needed for successful implementation.

During this webinar we:

  • Describe the structural framework of PDGM in comparison to the current payment model, the Home Health Prospective Payment System (PPS)
  • Explain the rationale behind the PDGM changes
  • Identify the concerns and opportunities in PDGM along with ongoing reform efforts
