The first step in your PDPM journey is developing a plan. You can’t make changes unless you understand your current state and have a clear understanding of the end state you want to achieve. PDPM is not just a payment shift, it requires a cultural change in care delivery, care delivery models, and a clear understanding of how your technology will support your PDPM journey. To be successful through PDPM, providers will require a change management plan that focuses on:

  • Optimizing reimbursement.
  • Addressing their facility’s changing resident populations.
  • Preparing for the impact of the change.
