PDGM and Visit Utilization: Does Your Documentation Support It?
Is your visit utilization based on acuity? Who determines that acuity, and is it based on benchmarks, or is it based off of “the way we have always done it”?
- TAHC&H Virtual Event | Winter Conference | Recorded for On-Demand Access
- Presentation Date | February 11, 2021
Program Description: We are one year into the new PDGM payment model. How has your agency adapted to not only the processes,
the payment, but also to provide visit utilization based on acuity? Who determines that acuity, and is it based on benchmarks, or is it based off of “the way we have always done it”?
You will hear when it may or may not be appropriate for nursing, therapy, or other disciplines, based off of YOUR documentation.
Implement or continue developing a sound case management program which is comprehensive, collaborative, and patient centered.

Reporting of Perceived Bias
Bias, as defined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC COA/LSNA) is the “tendency or inclination to cause partiality, favoritism, or influence.”
Commercial bias may occur when a CNE activity promotes one or more product(s) (drugs, devices, services, software, hardware, etc.). This definition is not all inclusive and participants may use
their own interpretation in deciding if a presentation is biased. The ANCC COA is interested in the opinions and perceptions of participants at approved CNE activities, especially in the presence
of actual or perceived bias in continuing education. Therefore, ANCC invites participants to access their “ANCC Accreditation Feedback Line” to report any noted bias or conflict of interest in the
education activity. The toll free number is 1(866) 262-9730.
