Component Focus: PT/OT & SLP in a Non-Therapy-Centric Environment
March 6, 2019 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
PDPM relieves the pressure of Ultra-High Rehab capture (and the ensuing audits) endemic to RUG-IV. PDPM requires SNFs to retrofit treatment protocols necessary to align clinical conditions and comorbidities with financial realities. The presenter will detail the new diagnosis-driven system driving the PT/OT & SLP PDPM components, including payment groupings, profile-specific treatment protocols, secondary Component splits, outcome measures, resource utilization and operational efficiencies that drive payment, without sacrificing quality and outcomes that have come to define contemporary post- acute care.
