MDS 3.0 Manual Changes - Connecting the Assessment to Quality and Reimbursement - Will you be ready?

July 24 - Perrysburg

The world of the MDS Coordinator is rapidly changing, with multiple initiatives beginning at the same time -- October 1, 2019.

The anxiously awaited MDS 3.0 manual changes have been released by CMS, and the changes are so extensive, that change tables simply do not suffice.

Some of the changes to be covered in this program include:

* Changes in conjunction with the start of the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) which completely changes the focus of reimbursement
* PPS assessment schedule eliminated with the arrival of PDPM
* Payment primarily driven by one 5 day assessment only
* Changes have been made to the Quality Reporting Program (QRP)
* SPADEs program introduced, to satisfy requirements of the IMPACT Act and is proposed to add 60.5 new MDS items!

Navigating all of the changes will be an interdisciplinary process with communication and documentation at the core of success.

This program will discuss the MDS changes in detail, and provide you with the tools to succeed in this new world of assessment.
