PDPM and Respiratory Therapy

For those looking for quality PDPM and respiratory therapy, Aeris Consulting is here to help. We offer a full suite of respiratory and consulting services for medical facilities throughout the U.S., and we can assist you with providing first class care and doing so profitably.

PDPM stands for Patient Driven Payment Model, a new option for customer payment for medical services starting in October of 2019. The idea of PDPM was to create a new financial model that dis-incentivized potentially harmful patient practices in nursing care facilities.

Respiratory conditions are among the top reasons for hospital readmission’s accounting for approximately 23% of all cases. Respiratory Therapists are uniquely trained in the delivery of modalities that are paramount to the overall management of patients with compromised respiratory conditions.

As PDPM becomes more common, providers will be allowed a chance to receive reimbursement for extensive nursing and Non-Therapy Ancillary services provided, including Respiratory Therapy Services.

Aeris Consulting & Management, LLC is a professional and experienced healthcare provider specializing in respiratory and sleep care for healthcare facilities (skilled nursing facilities, sub-acute rehabilitation facilities) and correctional facilities. We offer a wide range of educational programs, RT staffing and technology to clients throughout the country.

We are also a nationwide provide of respiratory equipment and supply rentals, including concentrators and ventilators. Our same day delivery and consignment services make it possible for you to have the supplies on hand to meet your skilled nursing needs and demand.
