The countdown to PDPM—October 1, 2019—continues. PDPM—PATIENT DRIVEN PAYMENT MODEL—is an entirely new payment model for all skilled nursing facility (SNF) Medicare Part A payments. The new model completely transforms Medicare Part A payments!
Care Providers of Minnesota is partnering with its national association, the American Health Care Association (AHCA), for a multi-faceted training initiative on PDPM.
PDPM ACADEMY includes both in-person training & online education, with continuing updates and support.
PDPM ACADEMY is divided into three parts, and registration includes access to all phases:
PHASE ONE: PRE-WORKSHOP WEBINARS
PHASE TWO: IN-PERSON • APRIL 24, 2019
PHASE THREE: PDPM ACADEMY REGISTRANTS WILL RECEIVE ACCESS TO MONTHLY LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES AND TOOLS
The PDPM ACADEMY workshop is an interactive learning opportunity featuring two national experts. Participants will learn from expert presenters, videos, and small group exercises. Workshop participants will go in-depth with four modules that lay the foundation for transition planning:
- aligning buildings and companies to transition to PDPM using AHCA’s PDPM Readiness Tools© and the related core competencies;
- classifying residents in case mix groups;
- assessing market position in a PDPM environment; and
- using PDPM ACADEMY organizational, business, and management tools to reconfigure business planning.
To ensure an effective workshop experience, all PDPM ACADEMY registrants are required to complete the webinar modules before April 24, 2019. Links to the webinar modules will be emailed to all registrants.
WHO SHOULD ENROLL?
It is important for a team of staff be part of a SNF’s PDPM transition team and participate in the PDPM ACADEMY.
PDPM ACADEMY registration is limited to Care Providers of Minnesota provider members.
