Without a full picture, how can you optimize patient outcomes?
Although Section GG is a significant driver for reimbursement, it’s commonly overlooked. We often miss documenting key areas such as baseline, discharge and goal data. You know the saying… “you can’t manage what you don’t measure.”
Join SimpleLTC and Quality Rehab Management (QRM) in this on-demand webinar for a deep dive into Section GG. We’ll cover how to document baseline and discharge data accurately and completely in order to improve quality measures and PDPM performance.
Industry experts Susan Krall and Megan Ussery will discuss common issues and present real-life examples to help you master Section GG and prepare for the removal of Section G.
