Session 22 | Preparing for the Elimination of Section G

Session Summary

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services posted a draft of updated Minimum Data Set (MDS) specifications, noting that all of Section G will be eliminated. The volume of new data that providers will be required to collect in MDS 1.18.11 starting in October 2023, is significant and will require a great deal of preparation. This session will provide insights regarding the specific changes, key preparation, planning steps to take and suggestions as far as what measures, metrics and outcomes to focus on to maintain a high-performing organization.
