Are You Ready for October MDS Changes?

October 1, 2018 brings many changes to the MDS 3.0 assessment; changes that impact current and new Quality Measures. This program will provide MDS Nurses, therapists and other members of the IDT team an overview of the new MDS items, coding structure and the impact these items will have on Quality Measures. 

Section GG:  Understanding Functional Outcomes


Forty six new items will be added to Section GG of the MDS 3.0 effective October 1, 2018.  Data from these items will be collected starting in October to generate five Quality Measures that will be publicly reported in FY 2020. Section GG will also generate the ADL Index for Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) effective October 1, 2019.  This program will provide an overview of Section GG items, coding structure and impact on Quality Measures.

The second step in the National Quality Award Program is the Silver – Achievement in Quality Award. A requirement of the program is to receive a Bronze – Commitment to Quality Award before applying at the Silver level. At this level, applicants continue to learn and develop effective approaches that help improve performance and health care outcomes. The Silver guidelines are based on the Baldrige Health Care Criteria for Performance Excellence. In addition to the Organizational Profile, applicants provide a thorough assessment of their systematic approaches and the deployment of these approaches. The Silver program provides a clear pathway for recipients moving to the Gold – Excellence in Quality Award. Through this paced webinar series participants can strategically review and write to address all criteria requirements.
