It's Called the Patient Driven Payment Model for a Reason CE Webinar

  • Registration Closed

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Possible models for Post-Acute Care Comprehensive, Person-Centered Care Planning which also align with CMS’ vision for “holistic care planning.”
  • Operational approaches for moving to and maintaining a day-to-day culture of person-center care delivery & quality measurement.
  • Business case for person-centered care – benefits for patients, staff, and providers.
