Event Workshops Include...

SNF Regulatory Outlook: Payment reform, PDPM, and the Survey Process
Presented by Stefanie Corbett, DHA, Regulatory Expert, Simplify Compliance

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 J'Non Griffin, President Home Health Solutions, Inc.

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.

“Surviving Sweeping Change” – New Payment Rules Under PDGM
Presented by Mary Kay Thalken Chief Clinical Officer at Ensocare

Topic: Home Health

This presentation will focus on how the changing reimbursement landscape (such as the PDGM) requires a new way of thinking about the way healthcare providers care for, manage and maintain oversight of their patients outside of the acute care setting.

Optimize Reimbursement and Operationalize PDPM
Presented by Stefanie Corbett, DHA, Regulatory Expert, Simplify Compliance

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.

Optimize Reimbursement and Operationalize under PDGM
Presented by J'Non Griffin, President Home Health Solutions, Inc.

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. 

How to Work with the Staff You Have Under a Changing Regulatory Environment
Presented by Reginald M. Hislop III, PhD, co-founded H2 Healthcare, LLC

Topic: Home Health and Long-Term Care

This session will teach you how to educate staff and leadership on their evolving roles and operationalize PDPM to make it work with your current workforce. Attendees with learn how to implement operational changes to promote best interdiplinary practices and competency development. 

Post-Acute Wound Management and Patient-Derived Reimbursement Models
Presented by Synergy Wound Technology

Topic: Home Health and Long-Term Care

With the advent of Patient-Driven Reimbursement Models wound management creates an opportunity for enhanced payment through development of a higher acuity case-mix; yet risk of increased potential for lost or missed revenue, as well as crippling repayments due to CMS RAC audits.

This session is focused by the case study of "Mr. Sores", a patient with a complex wounds, in transition from acute care to post-acute. Dr. Roger Schechter, a key opinion leader in wound management, will provide an overview of the opportunities and risks presented by wounds due to the advent of PDPM and PDGM, as well as medical legal considerations. 

Dr. Schechter and his team will also present Inteliwound (TM), a technological solution, designed to enhance revenues through lower costs, while mitigating risks through outcomes tracking and consistency of documentation.
