Ensure your agency not only survives but thrives in the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) with The Home Health Guide to PDGM, Third Edition. This guide takes the mystery out of PDGM by outlining the proper legal and financial steps to take to adapt — and what actions agencies should avoid. Additionally, learn how to properly manage costs and improve operational efficiencies while ensuring patients continue to receive high-quality care. The guide also details how agencies can determine how much they will be paid in PDGM.

The Home Health Guide to PDGM, Third Edition, also offers guidance on how to fully and accurately code in PDGM — ensuring you understand codes that are no longer accepted as primary diagnoses under PDGM and that your agency is paid accurately for care provided during 30-day payment periods. The guide also will provide tips on filling out the OASIS items that affect functional case-mix adjustment.

Additionally, The Home Health Guide to PDGM, Third Edition, will supply agencies with a detailed explanation of how the payment model works.
