Presented on February 28, 2019

The new Medicare Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) is a significant change which will require in-depth, detailed training and planning.

Objectives for this webinar session:

  • Correctly assess and code Admission Section GG for PDPM Function Score Data Elements.
  • Explain the role of the PT/OT Function Score in PDPM.
  • Describe the role of the Nursing Function Score in PDPM.
