Since the PDPM model was a wholesale shift in payment and delivery, initial training mechanisms focused on the new system components. Now that those immediate change needs have been adopted, education and training on best practices for implementing person-centered care should be reviewed to fully adopt CMS’s vision for the PDPM model.

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    In the Fiscal Year 2019 Skilled Nursing Facility Prospective Payment System Final Rule and subsequent guidance, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has discussed the need for “holistic care planning” under the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM). Most research and policy on holistic care planning is associated with Medicaid-financed long-term care rather than Medicare-financed post-acute care (PAC). Of note, in the final Skilled Nursing Facility Requirements for Participation, CMS discusses a “comprehensive, person-centered care plan.” Such alignment continues CMS’ focus on aligning payment policy with quality.

  • Medical Director’s Role in the SNF PDPM World CE Webinar

    The recent transition of the Medicare Part A skilled nursing facility prospective payment system (SNF PPS) from a RUG-IV model primarily driven by therapy delivery to a patient driven payment model (PDPM) based on resident characteristics, including a new emphasis on admitting and comorbid diagnoses has escalated the importance of the role of the SNF medical director. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year escalated the value further. In this session, the presenter, a nationally known geriatrician and spokesperson for high-quality SNF care, will describe how integrating the medical director more fully into the facility’s strategic as well as front-line PDPM-related operational and clinical activities in managing the care delivery of beneficiaries during a Medicare post-acute stay improves care.
