This program will discuss the five key components that skilled nursing facilities and their staff need to understand to be successful as we transition from RUG-IV PPS to PDPM payment process on October 1, 2019. Operational and clinical professionals will learn how to focus the interdisciplinary team around a new payment process, as errors in coding or lack of training will lead to loss and regulatory risk. 


  • Identify the specific changes in the PDPM payment process that require operational and clinical focus and process changes for the transition from RUG-IV PPS to PDPM
  • Describe the data-formulation process changes that are necessary to provide the new payment system with adequate information for payment rate formulation
  • Discuss the steps to develop an interdisciplinary data collection process using the current policy and process detailed in the updated RAI Manual as well as the rate transition process after October 1, 2019
  • Review the components of effective training and competency measurements that satisfy the updated regulatory requirements in the new payment system and regulatory tags
