As your home health partner, McBee, an industry leading, premier health care professional services firm is committed to helping you prepare for the coming changes related to the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM). PDGM is the most significant change for diagnosis coding since the implementation of ICD-10. A key component for calculating payment under PDGM will be clinical group assignment and comorbidity adjustment, thus making accurate ICD-10 coding more important than ever. The role of the clinician will be critical for accurate diagnosis assignment. Learn best practice clinical strategies to ensure patients are classified in meaningful payment categories as well as documentation tips that will support the clinical needs and services provided by the home health agency.
By the conclusion of this webinar, participants will:
- Discuss the importance of diagnosis coding in PDGM
- List methods to support accurate diagnosis collection
- Relate the role of diagnoses in developing and documenting the plan of care
