[On-demand webinar] RAI manual updates for MDS 3.0 – 2016

Ken BellTraining18 Comments

On Thursday, Aug. 18, we offered one of our most popular webinars ever. Now you can watch it on-demand to learn the details of upcoming Oct. 1 MDS 3.0 changes surrounding the SNF Quality Reporting Program, End of Medicare discharge assessments, and more.

The CMS draft version of the MDS 3.0 User’s Manual outlines significant coding clarifications and changes, including the new Section GG. Many of the changes are related to the new SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP), for which CMS will begin collecting MDS data on Oct. 1, 2016. There are also new requirements related to the Discharge assessment – SNF PPS Part A Discharge. This new assessment item set will also be implemented on Oct. 1 and all facility MDS staff will need to understand the requirements for completion of this new discharge assessment.

Watch the video above to get the key details of the Oct. 1 RAI manual changes that will directly affect your job. To download the webinar handouts: click here.

Section GG coding instructions will not be covered in this webinar. Ron will address Section GG details in a separate webinar scheduled for Friday, Sept. 16. To register for his upcoming Section GG webinar, click here.

What you’ll learn in this webinar

  • Requirements of the End of Medicare discharge assessment
  • Changes in Section C of the MDS
  • Coding changes related to Section M
  • Coding and modification requirements related to falls with injuries
  • And more…
