AHCA PDPM Academy 2020: Two New Subscription Events on March 31

AHCA PDPM Academy 2020: Two New Subscription Events on March 31

AHCA SNF provider members can now register for the AHCA PDPM Academy 2020 Subscription – Building Optimal Operational Capacities©. This exclusive “SNF provider member only” subscription package includes numerous pre-recorded webinars and six live open discussion forums, including one on March 31.

The subscription package includes:

  • Six pre-recorded one-hour educational webinars starting in March 2020 with continuing education (CE) credits accompanied by AHCA-developed guidance toolkits and other resources covering these six topics:
    • Holistic person-centered care planning
    • Evidence-based approaches for improving mobility
    • Effective care transitions at admission and discharge
    • Trend Tracker and other sources to monitor the quality impact of PDPM
    • Managing residents with complex nursing and NTA needs
    • Restorative nursing and skilled maintenance nursing and therapy – Available On- Demand March 31 (see course description below)
  • Six live PDPM Academy Open Discussion Forums: Next Forum is March 31 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. EDT. (On-demand recordings of these forums are available to subscribers.)
  • Access to AHCA’s complete library of 2019 and 2020 PDPM Academy materials.

The first on-demand CE course will be available March 31 and is titled Restorative Nursing and Skilled Maintenance Nursing and Therapy. Nearly one-third of SNF resident stays would be eligible for restorative nursing case-mix payment adjustments within the PDPM Nursing Component. Additionally, new flexibilities in therapy service delivery permitted under PDPM create incentives to develop more effective restorative nursing programs to all Medicare Part A residents, including those on an active therapy care plan. This module will highlight restorative nursing and skilled maintenance nursing and therapy best practices under PDPM.  This session is free with a 2020 PDPM Academy subscription.

The 2020 subscription fee is $299 per individual and is available only to AHCA SNF provider members (or individual contracted employees if registering through the AHCA provider member). The materials, toolkits, forums and webinars in the AHCA PDPM Academy 2020 Subscription package come from the nation’s top experts and are hundreds of dollars less than what private consultants are charging.
