Session 34 | Every MDS Counts: Aligning Care, Quality Initiatives and Reimbursement

Session Summary

This session will review the use of properly timed Resident Care Assessments with appropriate MDS coding to align intentional resident care with CMS Quality Initiatives and reimbursement. The Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) increased documentation complexity for optimal reimbursement to reflect resident needs and the increasing importance of Quality Initiative programs. Attendees will learn how to implement assessments affecting up to 14 Quality Measures (QM), eight 5-star Measures, seven Quality Reporting Program (QRP) Measures and Case Mix Group (CMG) reimbursement.
