Presbyterian Dual Plus (HMO D-SNP) Training

Long-Term Services & Supports (LTSS) Training

In collaboration with the other Centennial Care managed care organizations and the New Mexico Human Services Department, Presbyterian developed the following training materials for nursing facilities and agency-based providers.

Electronic Visit Verification System

The Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) System is used to track and report home visits by Centennial Care personal care services provider agencies and caregivers. The EVV system allows Presbyterian and the long-term care provider community to better serve our members and ensure they are receiving the services they need.

For questions about using the EVV system, view the documents below or contact Provider Network Management, relationship executive, Orlando Gonzalez, at (505) 923-6205.

Cultural Sensitivity Competencies Offered Online

Presbyterian is pleased to offer our network educational opportunities to become even more culturally competent while earning up to nine hours of free Continuing Education Units (CEU). As you know, being culturally sensitive and competent is extremely important in healthcare – and especially in the state of New Mexico.

Continuing Education courses include:

  • A Physician’s Practical Guide to Culturally Competent Care
  • Culturally Competent Nursing Care: A Cornerstone of Caring

Supported by the Office of Minority Health at the United States Department of Health and Human Services, and accredited by Ciné-Med Inc., these online competencies are designed to healthcare professionals deliver culturally competent care to an ever-increasing diverse population of members.

During registration, you will choose an appropriate program in which to earn up to nine free CME credits (Physicians and Physician Assistants) or nine free CEU hours (Nurse Practitioners). Since these competencies are made available via the web, you can earn free CEUs at your convenience.
