Region VI Meeting - August 13, 2019
Are you worried about PDGM? Does RCD have you bogged down? Come to the IHHC Region Meeting for some reassurance and relief! BONUS - Hospice discussion to follow.


The Patient Driven Groupings Model will take effect on January 1, 2020. Nationally known speaker, Melinda Gaboury, will give an overview of PDGM, let you know what you should be doing now to prepare and answer all of the questions you have about this major change to Home Health payment.

After the PDGM presentation we will jump in to the Review Choice Demonstration. Sara and Liz will lead a facilitated discussion sharing all insights gained from the first months of RCD. This is an opportunity to share issues that have come up so that they can be elevated and resolved. 

BONUS: The proposed 2020 Hospice Rule and the Hospice Evaluation and Assessment Reporting Tool (HEART) will be discussed followed by a group discussion of Hospice challenges and successes.
