PDPM: Understanding the Section GG ADL Function Scores
January 24, 2019
This webinar is the fourth in our educational series providing insight and information on the new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) that will go into effect October 1, 2019. This session will discuss the impact of Activities of Daily Living (ADL) functional scoring on the Therapy and Nursing components of PDPM. We will review examples of Minimum Data Set (MDS) coding for specific areas of ADL function, and discuss the differences between coding ADLs in MDS Sections G and GG. We will outline strategies for interdisciplinary team collaboration in capturing the full picture of a resident’s usual ADL function, with ideas for best practice.
