The Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) will revolutionize the payment methodology for all Medicare Home Health Agencies. Created by CMS, PDGM is slated to debut on January 1, 2020, and home health agencies must prepare immediately for the most important change to the Medicare home health program in the 21st century. Agencies must undertake significant operational and organizational reforms in early 2019 to be prepared to successfully transition to PDGM.
To enable home health leaders to successfully manage this new payment landscape, the Home Care, Hospice & Palliative Care Alliance of NH is co-sponsoring one of 12 National PDGM Summits with the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), the Home Health Financial Management Association (HHFMA), the Forum of State Associations, and the Home Care Technology Association of America.
The “Boston area” full-day summit will be March 12 at the Northampton Hotel in Northampton, MA. It will cover all aspects of managing the change to PDGM — operations, financial, clinical, data analytics, and technology. Industry experts from around the country will drill down to the important details of the radical changes coming to the entire payment methodology, including unit of payment, case mix adjuster, low utilization payment adjustment standards, payment for Non-Routine Medical Supplies, and more.

“PDGM will revolutionize how home care operates,” says NAHC President William A. Dombi. “Every Medicare Home Health Agency must carve its own path to the new payment model and attending one of these very special seminars is the absolute best way to make the transition to PDGM smooth and successful. An agency not prepared for PDGM is not prepared for the future.”
Registration is now open. Register soon, as this event is intended for New England, NY and NJ so it will fill up fast.
