Operational Overview of the New Long Term Care Survey and Changes to the MDS 3.0 Data Base

Join us for this fast moving interactive session that will provide facility administrators, corporate managers, clinical leadership and consultants with a candid specific review of the changes to the Long Term Care Survey process. Operational professionals need to understand the changes to the survey tasks, interviews, Tag content, the record review process as well as the new structure of the F-Tags. These changes require leadership and education to inform the staff of the new requirements and interview protocols. All of these issues will be discussed as well as resources, materials and educational programs. The MDS 3.0 data base changed in October of 2017 & will change again in October 2018. The new items and coding instructions have significant impact on the Quality Measures, 5-star, Outcome documentation, and person centered care planning. These issues all relate back to the regulatory changes. Approaches to data collection and overall data accuracy must be addressed by management as the risks of inaccurate data are now more significant and create payment risks. This is a must do session for administrators, clinical, and operational managers as it will discuss changes and specific ways to implement new policies and processes necessary for compliance. Join us for a day of interactive stimulating learning with one of the industry's best teachers!
