The new Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) begins October 1, 2019, and GHCA has partnered with AHCA to offer the PDPM Academy, a complete 10-month training package to help our members prepare for this massive change. The PDPM Academy Training Package includes both in-person training and continuing updates and supports.

  • AHCA’s PDPM Readiness Tools©

At the in-person workshop February 13, 2019 at the GHCA/GCAL Winter Convention, you will go in-depth with hands on experiential learning by:

  • Aligning buildings and companies to transition to PDPM using AHCA’s PDPM Readiness Tools© and the related core competencies;
  • Classifying residents in case mix groups;
  • Assessing market position in a PDPM environment; and
  • Using organizational, business, and management tools to reconfigure business planning.

Enroll in the PDPM Academy to get the knowledge and support you need for a successful transition to PDPM. To be successful with PDPM, Administrators, MDS, Billing staff, Nurses, DONs, and Therapists must be included in the training and education process. Enroll your entire team!
