Don't Just Survive Under PDPM,
Thrive with PDPM Coach™️

Stop leaving reimbursement on the table and minimize compliance risk with Patient Pattern’s all-in-one PDPM Solution.

What is Required to Thrive Under PDPM?

  • Collecting and optimizing diagnoses and conditions earlier is now absolutely critical. Waiting until the MDS is complete will reduce efficiency and reimbursement for the care you’re providing.
  • Practitioner participation and verification is paramount to maximize your reimbursements and minimize compliance risk as a system of checks and balances between your facility staff and practitioners will reduce the chance of inaccuracy and errors.
  • Patient Risk Insights. Because no two patients are alike, a Frailty Risk Score is important for guiding the provider on the appropriate plans of care to expedite recovery and promote long-term wellness.

PDPM Readiness Evaluation

How comprehensive is your admission screening process?

The 5-day Admissions MDS determines the PDPM per diem rate and is markedly improved with complete, timely data from all professionals.

Do you have a process for evaluating MDS integrity?

Consider auditing current MDS accuracy. Many MDS items have been modified for PDPM calculation and the first MDS drives the per diem rate for the patient’s entire stay.

Do you have professional resources to care for clinically complex patients?

PDPM per diem rate is driven by patient characteristics requiring increased complex care – delirium, depression, functional declines, ventilators, IV therapy, etc. Professional resources must match high acuity, as measured by Case Mix Index.

What is your approach for determining Primary Diagnosis ICD-10 code?

Calculating PDPM per diem rate starts with an accurate ICD-10 code. This new requirement is not always easy for MDS nurses, yet it drives reimbursement categories. Clinician involvement upon admission will be necessary for accuracy.

How do your providers stay informed of which patients are declining in real-time?

Monitoring Frailty with Patient Pattern allows clinicians to see patients prioritized by risk of decline and/or poor outcomes.

Patient Pattern has the answer to all of these questions. Our PDPM adapted software will guide your team, improve patient outcomes, and optimize reimbursement.
