Instituting the Patient-Driven Payment Model is consuming large amounts of providers’ time since its Oct. 1 implementation is closing in. A special McKnight’s webinar at 1 p.m. ET Jan. 17 will explore technological needs and recommendations for thriving under the sweeping new payment system.

Among other things, attendees will learn how to identify and extract key data that will optimize the Initial Assessment rate, and how to capture clinical changes to identify opportunities for Interim Payment Assessments. Speakers also will identify lost opportunities for PDPM reimbursement and discuss which elements of PDPM are outside the scope of an electronic medical record’s capability. Effective PDPM analytics tools also will be discussed.

The presenters include Marc Zimmet, president and CEO of Zimmet Healthcare Services Group, and Scott Rifkin, MD, founder and executive chairman of Real Time Medical Systems. The session is being moderated by McKnight’s Editor James M. Berklan and sponsored by Medline.
