Your essential guide to mastering MDS as a tool for payment, risk management & quality of care.

With 514 replacement pages to the Long-Term Care Facility Resident Assessment Instrument 3.0 User’s Manual Version 1.16, you’re likely concerned about guidance and interpretations — and more than a little worried about how you can best deliver and document care. Will each member of your team be clear on the intent, changes, and clarifications for each section he/she contributes to attest to complete accuracy?

And with ICD-10 coding set to become a more significant part of the MDS, MDS coordinators will require better fluency in ICD-10 coding to ensure so your facility gets paid.

Under the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM), nursing facilities and staff must be prepared to adjust documentation and even clinical practices to shore up crucial reimbursement. Plus, you’ll need to look beyond therapy minutes for reimbursement, and that means a greater shift to evaluating nursing.

Do you have a good handle on the nursing function score? Are you set to master the nursing categories and begin refining processes to collect the nursing information? Are your communication processes and documentation workflows watertight? Could you use help?

Don’t go at it alone. Leverage vital monthly guidance to keep pace with MDS updates and regulatory changes — ensure your facility runs smoothly, efficiently, and profitably — with your risk-free subscription to MDS Alert.

Get the help you need, delivered each month, in your risk-free subscription to MDS Alert.
