Many agencies will suffer devastating financial losses once the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) launches on or after January 1, 2020. To survive and thrive, agencies must improve their monitoring of visits, making every visit count while still ensuring patients get all the care and services they need.

In this 90-minute webinar, expert speaker Diane Link, RN, MHA, will show how PDGM is set to affect agencies’ payments—and how agencies can ensure they aren’t caught unprepared. Link will explain how clinical and case managers will need to shift their roles under PDGM. She will also cover benchmarks that clinical managers should monitor and the ways case conferences will need to change. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask their own questions during a live question and answer session.
