MDS 3.0: Get an In-Depth Look at the Changes, Challenges and Successful Implementation  

Success with MDS 3.0 requires an interdisciplinary process. Many of the tool’s definitions and instructions have changed so it will be important for facility staff to pay close attention to these. After all, the more you know the more in control of reimbursement and compliance you are!

Register for this audio conference and review the recent RAI manual changes for MDS 3.0 with our expert Marilyn Mines. The audio conference includes the conditions when inactivation and modifications may be completed, the confusing topic of combination of MDS assessments, and other changes the interdisciplinary team should be knowledgeable about.

In this 60 minute audio conference, the RAI manual will be the primary source for reference.  Some tips will be offered to ensure there is a proper check and balance system in place to avoid default billing or provider liability.
