Don’t Forget to Sign Up!


  • Review the PDPM classification system so you know how it differs from the RUG-IV Medicare payment system.
  • Understand the role of the IDT, and what will be expected of you as a member of that team, by following an admission through the departmental process.
  • Describe how clinical documentation systems support PDPM classification and assist your organization in capturing accurate reimbursement for services provided.
  • Learn through case studies how altering a component of the PDPM classification changes the per diem payment.
  • Identify actionable items to bring back to your organization that will make for a smoother implementation process, so you are ready before the October 1, 2019 deadline.

There are two remaining workshops in July at the following locations and times:


Mankato, MN, July 24 starting at 8:30 a.m.

Shoreview, MN, July 25, starting at 8:30 a.m.
