This presentation will give a high level overview of the PDGM structure with a focus on appropriate diagnosis coding as well as the need for interdisciplinary collaboration for the comorbidity adjustment as well as the functional impairment levels. This collaboration in conjunction with the establishment of clinical pathways should allow for a decrease in the instances of Low Utilization Payments as well as to earlier identify high-risk patients and avoid unnecessary hospitalizations and ED visits. We will briefly cover Review Choice Demonstration as well as dive into how HealthPRO Heritage at Home has innovatively operationalized Care Pathways to Success.
- Understand the financial impact of the Functional Impairment and Comorbidity PDGM components and how to implement good practices within your organization
- Understand the concept of a moving LUPA threshold and how IDT collaboration at the initiation of care can determine effective visit utilization
- Identify your high-risk patient population and how to maintain their care in the home
- Identify if your agency would benefit from Care Pathway implementation and where to begin
