Upcoming Webinars

Webinar Series: Nine Steps to PDPM

October 1, 2019 will be a significant day for skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) across the country. On this date, the new Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) will go into effect. SNFs of all sizes and scopes must prepare for these changes, and doing so will take a well-organized and deliberate plan of attack. Richter has developed that plan for you.

Richter’s Nine Steps to PDPM webinar series will provide SNF facilities with the vital knowledge they need in this new landscape, and it will highlight the path needed to ensure compliance and efficiency. Each month, a new webinar will be presented on a PDPM-related topic ranging from clinical applications to financial implications. SNF facility representatives can attend each webinar (or watch the recording) to gain insight on that PDPM topic. Following the webinar, facility representatives can take what they learned and apply it within their facility. This same process will repeat monthly as new and important PDPM-related information is presented. The monthly format of this webinar series provides ample time and space to help participants absorb manageable pieces of information. This systematic approach will decrease staff stress and help them retain more of what they learned.
