Your PDGM prep starts here

Here's how to test your PDGM knowledge -- and win a $10 e-card at the same time!

Home care providers looking to shore up their understanding of Medicare's new Patient-Driven Grouping Model (PDGM) before January can test their understanding of the new methodology and win a $10 Starbucks e-card at the same time.

This summer, Home Health Solutions is offering a PDGM Prep Quiz on its business Facebook page each Monday, posing a typical home health patient scenario and asking commenters to select the correct response for factors such as admission source and timing, clinical grouping, functional impairment and co-morbidities. All will be significant elements of new Medicare payment methodology under PDGM.

One commenter will be selected at random from among correct responses each week to receive the $10 e-card.

"The new PDGM Prep Quiz is just one of many ways Home Health Solutions is working every day to help home care providers get ready for the huge changes ahead in 2020 under PDGM," said J'non Griffin, company owner. "We're also offering a series of free one-hour webinars, and we have a Facebook group page which is devoted solely to discussion of the new payment model and all the changes it will usher in for home health next year," J'non said. "Plus, we send out an informative newsletter by email every Monday with helpful tips and important links."
