NAHC to Host 6 New Free Webinars: PDGM in Real Time

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) will present a new six part webinar series, PDGM in Real Time, that will cover the essential topics of the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) and also feature an open forum in which attendees can have their specific questions answered by the top PDGM experts in the home health industry. Every webinar in the series is free to NAHC members and non-members alike. REGISTER NOW!

PDGM represents the most significant change in the Medicare home health program in the 21st Century. It radically changes the Medicare payment methodology, including the unit of payment, the case mix adjuster, Low Utilization Payment Adjustment standards, and payment for Non-Routine Medical Supplies.

Participants in the webinar series will share and gain insights with Home Care & Hospice Financial Managers Association (HHFMA) experts about what is working and not working in the early weeks of PDGM. These webinars, along with the PDGM 2020 National Summits, which start at the end of March, are designed to enable home health agencies to achieve “high performer” status through continuous operational improvements in financial, clinical, business analytics, and administrative operations as PDGM unfolds.
