Post-Acute Care Forum in Phoenix, AZ
November 18 & 19, 2019

Event Workshops Include...

SNF Regulatory Outlook: Payment reform, PDPM, and the Survey Process
Presented by TBD

Topic: Long-Term Care

The evolving post-acute care industry landscape introduces greater accountability, a heightened focus on patient outcomes, and significant payment reform for skilled nursing facilities. Building solid processes and systems is critical for staying compliant under the numerous CMS regulatory changes including the Patient-Drive Payment Model (PDPM) and the new survey process. Learn how industry changes will impact your clinical and financial operations and strategies for achieving and sustaining compliance in the future marketplace. 


HH Regulatory Update: Navigating the New Payment Model
Presented by TBD

Topic: Home Health

Understanding how the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) will work is crucial to understanding the model’s potential impact on your agency’s bottom line. This session will review CMS’ plans for a new payment model beginning on or after  Jan. 1, 2020 — explaining why CMS feels a need to revise the way agencies get paid and how PDGM will be a sea change from the existing Prospective Payment System (PPS). 


Specializing Your SNF: Strategies for Increased Reimbursement and Quality Improvement
Presented by TBD

Topic: Long-Term Care

Reimbursement is no longer driven by therapy minutes under PDPM; instead, higher acuity patients will receive higher reimbursement, which for some facilities may mean changing your operating model to adapt. Learn strategies for specializing your SNF for increased reimbursement and quality.


PDPM Success Starts with Care Transitions
Presented by TBD

Topic: Home Health

Achieve greater success during the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) by improving the way care transitions to your agency occur. While agencies will feel an urgent need for speed when it comes to billing under PDGM, they also must consider the increased importance of having intake staff and clinicians gathering detailed, accurate information. Without that kind of information, coding won’t be as accurate as possible. Reduce the risk of denied claims or leaving money on the table.

Intake will play a huge role in coding accuracy, from identifying admission source to avoiding questionable encounter codes through diagnosis specificity at referral. In addition to the need to improve intake under PDGM, it will be even more important to have clinicians document information thoroughly, efficiently and accurately and how that leads to increased accuracy on the OASIS.


Optimize Reimbursement and Operationalize PDPM
Presented by TBD

Topic: Long-Term Care

Providers don’t want to miss this session on PDPM, which will discuss how to optimize and project revenue under the new model’s clinical categories and how to operationalize PDPM requirements with a thorough prescreening process, effective resident goal setting, accurate coding, IDT involvement, astute therapy contract negotiation and more.


PDGM
Presented by TBD

Topic: Home Health

With CMS' shift of payment periods for home health from 60 days to 30 days, it’s essential that agencies identify ways to speed up processes so they can bill faster. Under the Prospective Payment System (PPS), many agencies take 18 to 21 days to submit requests for anticipated payment (RAPs). And it might take agencies 20 to 30 days post-discharge to submit a final bill. But under PDGM, cash flow will be king.

Presented by TBD

Topic: Long-Term Care
