    Dear Fellow Occupational Therapy Practitioners:

    • Are you concerned or confused about the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM)?
    • Are you wondering what your role will be in this new Medicare A approach to reimbursement?

    Members of the Springfield College Department of Occupational Therapy (OT) are sponsoring a workshop with Elaine Adams, corporate director of regulatory compliance for Genesis Rehab Services, so you can:  

    • Separate the facts from the myths about PDPM,
    • Embrace and strengthen your roles in clinical decision making by determining what is best for your clients and their individual needs,
    • Help your facility improve the quality of life for your residents and for the facility, and
    • Show that OT offers value for both the facility and the resident.

    This affordable and timely workshop with Adams, an expert in the areas of Medicare and healthcare reimbursement, and Laurie Cecchi, a specialist in geriatric clinical practice, will efficiently and effectively answer your questions as OT practitioners, and prepare you to confidently move forward in your practice under PDPM.

    The attached flyer provides details about this workshop, including date and time, location, objectives, and continuing education credit. Please feel free to share it widely with all OT practitioners who may be interested.
