Are you making the most out of your MDS?

Last October’s MDS changes were the most significant since 2011. How can we use this new data to better care for residents each day?

When regulatory change happens, SNFs often focus on the new data and miss the intent. Just collecting the data is not enough… we must integrate it into care planning and IDT processes to achieve better outcomes.

For example, if Social Services or Nursing learns about a resident’s transportation challenges but doesn’t communicate with Therapy, the care plan can be negatively impacted. The same is true for Section Q Participation in Assessment and Goal Setting, which is critical for care planning.

So how do we connect the dots, from MDS data to care planning to successful discharge?

In this timely webinar, we’ll review key MDS data elements — including recent changes and those proposed in the FY2025 SNF PPS Proposed Rule — and how those items drive person-centered care when communicated and integrated effectively.

Who should attend?

  • Anyone responsible for MDS data
  • Social Services
  • Nursing
  • Therapy
  • IDT team members
