ABOUT THE PATIENT DRIVEN GROUPINGS MODEL
What is PDGM? How will PDGM Affect me?
Wise planning in 2019 can help prepare home health agencies for the massive PDGM changes scheduled for 2020.
- Technology – Home health agencies are still figuring out the exact formula for successfully leveraging technology solutions into their care delivery and business models. However, the pieces are starting to come together. And, it’s clear that technology will play a bigger role in 2020 and beyond.
- Up-to-date EHR (Electronic Health Records) technology will be critical in the era of PDGM. EHR will help to reduce your staff’s burdensome clinical documentation tasks. It will also ensure that reimbursements are properly billed based on clinical grouping, and that co-morbidity bumps are reflected.
- RPM (Remote Patient Monitoring) and “Virtual Care” will also enable your agency to operate more cost effectively and can even provide additional reimbursement opportunities. PDGM guidelines will allow for reimbursement on some “virtual visits.” The technology may also help to offset the loss in therapy billing by providing a cost-effective alternative to in-person sessions.
- Staff – The prospect of higher labor costs can be scary for home health agency owners and management. However, PDGM may warrant additional hires—especially when it comes to clinical documentation. This may be case of not being “penny wise and pound foolish.” Accurate billing will be even more critical once PDGM is in force, and a small investment in staff could yield big returns in reimbursements.
In the end, PDGM presents complex challenges to home health agencies. However, it may also provide opportunity. Forward-thinking companies need to act now and create a plan for 2020. Successes will likely result from technological solutions combined with a realignment of staffing resources.
