Why PDPM is a game changer for post-acute care

The single largest change to the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Prospective Payment System in over 20 years was implemented on October 1, 2019 with the introduction of the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM). In this Essential Insight, naviHealth Senior Director of Outcomes Integrity Amy Leibensberger explains why cost and quality outcomes need to be of equal consideration to determine patient care under PDPM.

There was a ton to unwrap from HIMSS19 in Orlando, Florida.
