Weekly Bootcamp (8 Weeks)
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm E.S.T.
A Competent Harmony Healthcare MDS Professional (CHHI-MDS) is an
interdisciplinary team member who successfully completes this intensive,
clinically founded training, geared towards providing and documenting outstanding
patient care while understanding regulatory requirements and reimbursement related to
MDS in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) setting. This program is interactive with a focus
on practical application for the clinical staff and interdisciplinary team.
The major focus of the course time is on the accurate coding of the MDS 3.0 assessment tool by moving through the tools section by section. The Care Area Assessments (CAAs) will be introduced as the vital link between the MDS 3.0 and the accurate and resident specific Care Plan. Participants will learn how to successfully manage the OBRA schedule and the PPS schedule, including the scheduled and unscheduled assessments. A detailed discussion of ADL coding and ADL scoring will provide the participant with the tools to more successfully manage ARD selection and to teach the nursing team how to document ADLs more accurately. The speaker will demonstrate how MDS Coding correlates to Quality Measures and Five-Star as well as the impact of coding accuracy on reimbursement and the regulatory survey process. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and glean provider-specific clarifications that can be applied immediately upon returning to work.
