PDGM National Summit - Illinois

PDGM National Summit - Illinois
Is your agency prepared to deal with the most consequential changes to impact home health in decades? The Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) will revolutionize the payment methodology for all Medicare Home Health Agencies in the United States. PDGM, created by CMS, is slated to debut on January 1, 2020.

Agencies must prepare immediately for these important regulatory changes. Significant operational and organizational reforms must be undertaken by your agency in early 2019 to successfully transition to PDGM.  To enable home health leaders to successfully manage this new payment landscape, we invite you to join us for a one-day summit on transitioning to the PDGM. This in-depth summit, which will be held at the Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca, IL, will cover all aspects of managing the change to PDGM -- operations, financial, clinical, data analytics, and technology.

PDGM is critical to your future success.

PDGM represents the most significant change in the Medicare home health program in the 21st Century. It will radically change the payment methodology, including the unit of payment, the case mix adjuster, Low Utilization Payment Adjustment standards, and payment for Non-Routine Medical Supplies.

You must begin preparing immediately!

Home Health Agencies must initiate significant organizational and operational changes in early 2019 in order to successfully transition to PDGM. Join us for our PDGM Summit on March 5, 2019 for an intensive, one-day program that will prepare your Medicare HHA for the PDGM revolution. 

Why should you attend?

It is critical for you to have the new tools and knowledge necessary to understand and adapt your business to these important changes. These in-depth, one-day summits will cover all facets of managing change to PDGM – operations; clinical; financial; data analytics; and technology. Faculty drawn from the top home health consulting firms in the nation will provide you with the skills you need to smoothly and successfully transition to PDGM.
