The Patient Driven Grouper Model (PDGM) is the most significant change to the home health payor system since the year 2000. We are moving away from therapy utilization driven payment to a payment largely driven by diagnosis codes. 

In this new in-depth course, home health industry expert Lisa Selman-Holman will cover PDGM success tips including:

  • Understanding your percentage of institutional vs. community referrals
  • How to improve your coding accuracy
  • How to improve staff knowledge of guidance regarding the functional items
  • And much more
