GNYHCFA PDPM Skills Workshop July 24, 2019

As you are aware effective October 1, 2019, a new case-mix classification model – the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) will be implemented for Medicare Part A stays.  NYSDOH will review PDPM for Medicaid stays over the next. PDPM relies on over 180 MDS item fields. Failing to accurately code patient needs from the outset will have a significant impact on reimbursement.

GNYHCFA is proud to offer a PDPM skills workshop to assist your staff to effectively operationalize PDPM. This skills workshop facilitated by Nelia Adaci of the CHARTS Group will take a comprehensive look at strategies and tools to promote your facility’s success clinically and financially through positive clinical and financial outcomes.

While this is a nurse-focused training, non-nursing personnel who are essential to PDPM implementation in your facility are welcome to attend!

Monitoring Patch Offers Up-To-Date Information

Dr. Scarpa of Vestra Care presented the Telistat technology at our seminar “Providing Integrated Healthcare and Improving Outcomes” on June 21, 2018. We wanted to share the latest innovation update for Telistat.

“This patch is quite literally, a life-saver, and it will allow our patients in skilled nursing facilities to dramatically reduce the amount of money, time, and energy expended to treat their chronic condition. Better yet, they will be able to stay home. They will be able to communicate directly with the ‘war room’ through their television, laptop, tablet or cell phone. It is a harbinger of medical care to come.”
