PDPM Preparedness

Are You Prepared for PDPM?

Right now, many of you are wondering how the proposed Patient-Driven Payment Model, or PDPM for short, will impact your business. To be clear, this new reimbursement model is not just a revision of the current Resource Utilization Group (RUG) system. It’s a total overhaul of the payment model used by SNFs since 1998.

Based on what we currently know, reimbursement under PDPM will be primarily driven by a patient’s diagnosis, rather than the amount of therapy provided. This will impact the way future services are managed and delivered.

Although PDPM is currently still under consideration, we’ve assembled all the information we’ve learned so far. Our goal is to help you better understand this new, game-changing payment model.

We’re Responding with a Revolutionary Clinical Model.

Rest assured, TMC is staying ahead of the curve. We’re currently developing a proactive model of care versus the reactive model our industry uses now. This means better care for patients, and more efficient systems for you. In fact, we’ve already made impressive progress in a number of critical areas.

If you’d like to know more about how TMC is preparing for the PDPM change, and how our new processes can help you prepare, too, call us now at (800) 804-9961 or contact us.

Our skilled facility has had the pleasure of working with TMC since February 2011. Since then we’ve come to realize what a true partner in this business they really are. Our TMC staff are valuable assets to not only our patients, but our entire staff as well. They provide excellent communication, support, and visibility within our facility in addition to the highest standard of care we’ve experienced with a therapy provider! There’s no doubt that the TMC therapists leave a lasting impression on our patients and staff.
