It is that time of year again! MDS Changes season this year brings a multitude of changes that will impact many sections of the MDS. These changes also begin to prepare us for the new Patient Driven Payment System to be implemented in 2019. The changes in October of 2018 include the addition of new items, some revised items, and yes, even a few deleted items. During this webinar we discuss the major changes to Sections GG, I, J, M, N and 0. We also discuss why these changes were made and the impact they may have.
Watch this webinar to learn how to:
Identify new items and coding guidance for Sections GG, I, J, M, N and 0
Identify how the MDS changes will impact Quality Measures and payment
Discuss some key operational changes that may need to occur due to the new MDS items
