Audio Conference - Operationalizing PDPM to Successfully Manage Quality Outcomes for High-Risk Frail Patients

Join NYSHFA on November 2nd for the "Operationalizing PDPM to Successfully Manage Quality Outcomes for High-Risk Frail Patients" Audio Conference.

Physicians and Facilities are increasingly required to accept more financial and clinical risk.  The standard CMS models for Risk (HCC) are based on ICD-10 codes, a paradigm ill-suited for managing risk in the LTPAC population.  HCC is based on a disease model which is insensitive to patient changes in condition. Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) is a new approach for reimbursement and evaluates payments based primarily on medical complexity (frailty) and nursing needs. Hospitals and Insurers are increasingly focusing on outcomes, not just star ratings. As the patient population becomes increasingly more challenging to manage, keeping beds occupied will require focus on generating the best possible quality outcomes. With changes on the horizon, it is critical for administration leadership to work closely with their nursing and medical staff to manage patient and family expectations and optimize clinical outcomes. This program will show how well researched Frailty Indices can provide more bedside utility for facility and medical staff in identifying high risk/need patients.  Frailty Indices are designed to capture the subtle changes in function/cognition in the LTPAC population.
