The Virtual PDPM Training Class Can Help You Get Ready Now for October 1!
The new patient driven patient model (PDPM) begins October 1, 2019. Patient clinical characteristics in totality will determine payment so the need for quick and highly accurate assessment and diagnosis will be critical. Payment will no longer be focused on therapy minutes and ADLs but instead will rely on over 180 MDS item fields. Failing to accurately code patient needs will have a significant impact on adequate and accurate payment for high quality care. Staff roles must change to operate effectively under PDPM.
Registration for the Virtual PDPM Training also includes access to the online PDPM ACADEMY where updates, tools, webinars, and other supporting materials are housed. You will also be able to join in the free monthly webinars designed to provide additional training and PDPM updates.
NAB approved CEs have been requested.
**Members who register for the PDPM Virtual Training understand that the training and all supporting materials within the Academy are copyrighted and should not be shared.
Registration Fees: $350
Please note: only provider members of AHCA may register.
Who should register: To be successful with PDPM, Administrators, MDS/billing staff, nurses/DONs, and therapists must be included in the training and education process.
Estimated time to complete the course videos:
Overview: 9 minutes
Module 1: 1 hour and 40 minutes
Module 2: 22 minutes
Module 3: 3 ours and 30 minutes
Module 4: 43 minutes
Since this is an interactive workshop simulation that includes multiple pauses to practice workshop activities, learners should plan on budgeting an additional 20-25% time to the module running time to complete the modules, especially Modules 1 and 3.
AHCA’s recommends a slow deliberate pace as trainees move through both the virtual PDPM Academy workshop. To aid with placing the PDPM ICD-10 content on perspective, we recommend watching the following pre-recorded webinars:

- PDPM Basics (32 minutes)
- Payment Case Examples (20 minutes)
- SNF Benefit Review & Interaction with Existing SNF Policies/Programs (17 minutes)
- “How-To” Use CMS ICD-10 PDPM Crosswalk Tables (22 minutes)
