KHA to Host PPS Swing Bed Patient Driven Payment Methodology Seminar
Wednesday, May 22, 2019 2:35 PM
KHA will host a very timely and informative seminar to assist member hospitals with swing beds in the transition to the Patient Driven Payment Model on June 27 at KHA Headquarters in Louisville.
The Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) is a new case-mix classification system for classifying skilled nursing facility (SB/SNF) patients in a Medicare Part A covered stay into payment groups under the SNF Prospective Payment System. Effective beginning October 1, 2019, PDPM will replace the current case-mix classification system, the Resource Utilization Group, Version IV (RUG-IV).
This program is intended to assist small rural PPS hospitals with training for their staff to ensure they have a good understanding of what is PDPM, what are the changes in the MDS and/or how will it impact their revenue. PDPM is not just a payment shift, it requires a cultural change in care delivery and care delivery models, as well as a clear understanding of what should be expected from staff in implementing new processes.
See the program's flyer for more details. Online registration will be available soon. Reserve your seat today by contacting Claire Arant at KHA (firstname.lastname@example.org).
