DALLAS (July 30, 2019)—A nationwide series of one-day interactive seminars will help home health providers learn strategies for success under the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM), the new payment model set to start Jan. 1, 2020. The nine seminars are hosted by Axxess, a home health care technology provider.

The curriculum for each seminar has been designed to empower providers with actionable strategies they can implement for growth in 2020 and beyond. The expert speakers from Axxess and other partner organizations will draw on decades of experience to share recommendations for providers to use in daily operations. Through its accreditation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, Axxess is providing seven continuing education credits to attendees. Each seminar will cover a wide range of PDGM-specific topics including:

  • How to get the most important OASIS information you need in five minutes
  • Implementing maintenance therapy programs and telemonitoring
  • Setting up visit schedules that prevent avoidable LUPAs
  • How each component of PDGM builds the case weight
  • Restructuring intake processes to obtain necessary billing information

“PDGM is the biggest change the home health industry has seen in a generation,” said Axxess Founder and CEO John Olajide. “Axxess is here to help the industry navigate this change so that everyone is ready to deliver quality, patient-centered care in the home.”

The seminars begin Sept. 24 and run through Dec. 5 in nine cities across the United States. A complete list of the dates and locations is available at Axxess’ PDGM Resource Center.
