The American Health Care Association (AHCA) is pleased to offer in partnership with the Indiana Health Care Association, the PDPM Academy, a 10-month training effort led by AHCA to help facilities prepare for this massive change.

  • PDPM 101 workshop webinar (this webinar is a prerequisite for the February 7 training, the webinar can be accessed here)
  • One-day in person training workshop – February 7, 2019

At the February 7 in-person workshop, participants will go in-depth on with hands-on experiential learning by:

  1. Aligning buildings and companies to transition to PDPM using AHCA’s Copyrighted PDPM Readiness Tool and Related Core Competencies;
  2. Classifying Residents into Case Mix Groups;
  3. Assessing market position in a PDPM environment; and
