About This Event

Readiness training for Oct. 1, 2023 MDS Revisions

When/Where: Thursday, June 8 from 10:00am-3:30pm (VIRTUAL, 5 hrs of content with a 30 minute break)

An updated version of the MDS 3.0 (version 1.18.11) will be implemented effective October 1, 2023, and the new MDS 3.0 data set is undergoing the most significant change to the RAI since it’s implementation in 2010. This session will review key changes to the MDS item sets and how to accurately code any new or revised items as a critical first step in preparing for the changes. In addition, discussion will include key considerations for the overarching impact of the October changes on facility processes, including, but not limited to, the potential impact to reimbursement, and implications for the CAAs and individualized Care Planning, discharge planning, survey, SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP), and the Five Star rating. This session will prepare participants by sharing insights into the MDS 3.0 changes and providing guidance on action steps to take to effectively operationalize these changes within facility processes.

Training topics will include:
• Overview of the history and purpose of the MDS
• In-depth review of the Changes to section A, C, D, G, GG, N, and O of the MDS
• Impact of the changes on the completion of the Care Area Assessments (CAAs) and Individualized care planning process
• Overview of SNF QRP including data collection and calculation of new measures
• PDPM Payment Implications
• Five Star Rating impact on the quality measure and staffing domains

Target Audience: MDS coordinators, Interdisciplinary team members, Nursing Leadership, Nursing Home Administrators
