Accreditation Check:

This course is a recording of a previously hosted live webinar event. Polling and question submission features are not available for this recording. Format and structure may differ from standard MedBridge courses. On October 1, the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) replaced the 20-year-old Skilled Nursing Facility's (SNF) Resource Utilization Groups (RUGs) payment system. If you are reading this, you made it through the transition! But how you're doing depends a lot on how well you adapted your clinical processes and integrated them into your operational system. This webinar will talk about what the industry has learned so far. What is working? What hasn't worked as well as we might have thought? Appropriate care delivery is at the core of SNF care and monitoring the outcomes of care will ensure that goal is met.
