AHCA Virtual PDPM Training

AHCA’s Vitual PDPM training is an online course that mirrors in-person training and can also be taken by those who feel like they could benefit from taking the PDPM course again.

The new Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) for skilled nursing facilities begins October 1, 2019. The PDPM system will rely on more than 180 MDS item fields and completely transforms the existing system Medicare Part A payment system for skilled nursing facilities. Staff roles and facility processes must be substantially modified to operate effectively under PDPM.

This virtual training allows IHCA skilled nursing facility (SNF) members to learn about the critical steps necessary on the pathway to success under PDPM. Included with the virtual training is access to all materials on AHCA’s PDPM Academy. The PDPM Academy is where updates, tools, webinars and other supporting materials are housed. IHCA SNF members who attend the Virtual PDPM Training will also be able to join in free monthly PDPM Academy webinars hosted by AHCA.

This training is available to IHCA SNF provider members only. The cost for the training – whether first time or repeated – is $350. The training has been approved for 8 NAB CE credits.
