Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) Resource Center

Change is coming on October 1, 2019. What are you doing to prepare?

What is PDPM?

There’s a new payment model coming this year for skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), and it will require a completely new way of calculating reimbursements. With the model taking effect on October 1, 2019, skilled nursing facilities will need to prepare now for a new case-mix model that focuses on clinically relevant factors rather than volume-based services.

From helping your staff members understand the shift in mindset to accurately calculating reimbursements rates for your facility, Cantata Health’s NetSolutions platform has the expertise to guide our clients through the upcoming changes.

To ensure accurate payments, skilled nursing facilities need a solution that can:

Reduce risk and ensure accuracy

Increased compliance with clinical decision support tools. 

Gain visibility into data and population

Configurable snapshot views and reporting based on your desired area of focus.

Alleviate administrative burdens

Access to ICD-10 libraries and daily reimbursement rates.

Enable staff to work effectively

Featuring multiple on-site, remote, and on-demand training options.
