PDPM transition worries? Trust Proactive to guide your team through a step-by-step transition plan.

You’ve attended PDPM training, now what? If your team is struggling with implementation of a transition plan from RUG IV to the new payment model, you’re not alone. What should be on your transition action plan in May?

  1. Applying clinical category mapping to all Medicare Admissions using ICD.10 coding and surgical history
  2. Assessing MDS accuracy with emphasis on accurately coding Principal Diagnosis, co-morbidities and NTA conditions/services
  3. Reviewing clinical meeting processes and your ability to capture changes in condition, functional updates that may impact section GG scores, and new diagnosis/service needs that may contribute to the need for an optional IPA to be completed after October 1st
  4. Evaluating expected reimbursement under PDPM by admission type/clinical category
