PDGM has our industry concerned and in some ways, at a standstill. While we know the main components of the new model, we're still waiting for some of the kinks to be ironed out of the less central elements. These undefined pieces are causing some agencies to stall preparations.
Even though PDGM's final iteration has a few loose ends, experts suggest having your plan in place by the end of the first quarter of 2019--at the latest. (If you're tracking with us, that's right about now.)
We know from our day-today work with home health agencies, most agencies don't have a personalized plan--not to mention the man (or woman) power to implement that plan in time for next year.
The truth is, we know enough about the key components of PDGM to strategize and execute an effective plan. We know what will drive reimbursement and we know what your agency needs to deliver to most effective and efficient care.
With all of this in mind, we've tailored our operational assessment and optimization service to serve as your plan and boots-on-the-ground approach to not only prepare but succeed no matter what version of PDGM materializes next year.
How do we do this? Well, our approach is based on efficiency and quality gains specific to your agency and your patients. We start with an assessment and then get to work with an on-site optimization.
We dig into your data to analyze your processes, your team and your payments. We learn what you're good at and what you can work on. Then, we deliver a customized plan to do more of what works and fix what doesn't.
We then, hold your hand through implementing this plan and ensuring its success. Agencies who have used our PDGM assessment and optimization services find millions of dollars they were leaving on the table. More importantly, they improve patient care quality by leaps and bounds.
