Part I: 10/1/23 MDS Changes Impacting Clinicians

The clock is ticking for MDS changes effective 10/1/23.  With these changes clinicians need to rethink methods of communication and documentation to capture information for MDS 3.0 version 1.18.11.

In addition, significant changes to quality programs will be effective 10/1/23. Data collection impacting Medicare revenue will be sourced from multiple areas, including new items in the MDS, claims, and facility reporting portals. In order to avoid reduction in Medicare Part A reimbursement, new or revised data points added to the MDS will be required to achieve SNF QRP compliance.

This session will examine changes included in the new MDS version. The presenter will explore best practices and strategies to collect, capture, and code the additional items CMS will require from providers.

Part II: Operationalizing 10/1/23 MDS Changes

The countdown to massive MDS changes is on! This new MDS version will not only impact Medicare reimbursement; significant changes to case mix methodologies will affect SNF Medicaid reimbursement. Proactive providers will be better prepared for the changes and will mitigate potential revenue losses. 

With staffing a concern already, this additional workload requires a thoughtful rollout. Join this session to review major changes to the MDS beginning 10/1/23 and the related changes to facility processes to ensure information is captured. The presenter will explore the impact on a provider’s 5-Star rating, quality measures, and reimbursement. Attendees will leave this session with actionable steps to put into operation.
