This is the 1st presentation from the 2019 AOTA Specialty Conference: PDGM & Occupational Therapy: Navigating Payment Changes in Home Health
PDGM promises to have a big impact on home health agencies from a payment, a cost, and a quality perspective. Occupational therapy practitioners have an opportunity to assist their agencies in ensuring the most accurate payments by providing the most accurate picture of each patient’s functional OASIS scoring. Occupational therapy can also contribute to effective and efficient patient-centered plans of care for optimum outcomes. This session, and this conference, can help occupational therapy practitioners communicate to their agencies their value impact on PDGM.
