Although Section GG is a significant driver for reimbursement, it’s commonly overlooked. We often miss documenting key areas such as baseline, discharge and goal data. You know the saying… “you can’t manage what you don’t measure.”

Join SimpleLTC and Quality Rehab Management (QRM) for a deep dive into Section GG. We’ll cover how to document baseline and discharge data accurately and completely in order to improve quality measures and PDPM performance. 

Industry experts Susan Krall and Megan Ussery will discuss common issues and present real-life examples to help you master Section GG and prepare for the removal of Section G.

  • Obstacles to accurate data gathering and successful implementation solutions to overcome hurdles
  • What CMS is looking for to measure patient outcomes, specifically in regard to GG baseline and discharge data
  • How data available today can enable real-time changes towards accuracy and positive outcomes
