MDS Symposium 
Join us on August 28th & 29th
Jump Start your Quality Improvement Program post pandemic by learning how the MDS is reflected in public reporting.

This two-day course will cover all aspects of the MDS Assessment process in accordance with the RAI instructions. The intent of each section of the MDS will be reviewed in addition to the coding instructions, documentation review and resident/staff interviews. The MDS coding will then be correlated to how Quality Measures are generated and impact the CASPER, QRP and Five Star Program as well as Medicare reimbursement under the Patient Driven Payment Program. 

Day One - Review of each section of the MDS intent, coding instructions and documentation impact on accurate coding.

Day Two - Review of how the MDS Coding impacts Patient Driven Payment Program, Quality Measures, Quality Reporting Program, QASP, and Five Star Program.
