Session 1 | MDS 3.0 Quality Measures that Impact Five Star Quality Rating on Florida Reimbursement

Session Summary

MDS 3.0 Quality Measures (QM) impact the Five Star Rating System, survey and Florida reimbursement. When coded correctly, the MDS 3.0 Quality Measures can identify clinical areas to compare the nursing center's performance against other nursing centers in the state and/or nation. Often, clinical and administrative leaders wonder whether the QM scores reflect MDS errors or clinical opportunities for improvement. This session will explain the MDS questions and coding for each of the measures, exclusions, risk adjustment and the impact on Florida's Medicaid payment system.
