  • Person-Centered Care In A PDPM World

    Contains 34 Component(s), Includes Credits

    This four-module course is designed to improve person-centered care for post-acute care (short stay) residents under the PDPM payment system. 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. This course will define person-centered care and show how it is a key feature in PDPM and when implemented can improve care practices that lead to better patient outcomes.

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

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    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.
