Better Care, Greater Reimbursements, PDPM’s Pharmacy Opportunity

Recently, SRX’s Paula Agoglia and Dhaval Thakkar spoke with Skilled Nursing News about the opportunities for long-term care operators to improve pharmacy management and drug utilization under Medicare’s Patient-Driven Payment model (PDPM).

The white paper also includes discussion with AJ Farhoud with Bandera Family Health Care, a division of Ensign Services, and David Moskowitz with National HealthCare Associates. The paper details strategies for managing pharmacy need, the importance of a drug utilization review in maximizing PDPM reimbursements, and the benefits of implementing technology and automation to improve reimbursements.
