Presentation Date: June 4, 2019 Live Webinar

Course Description:

This 1.25 hour webinar will review strategies for successfully managing rehabilitation programs through the shift in reimbursement from a focus on therapy service time delivered to the patient driven payment model which emphasizes resident characteristics.

Guidance regarding preparing for payment model changes while maintaining an effectively functioning therapy program will be provided. An action planning tool will be shared with participants
