In keeping with the success of their previous highly-rated distance learning education offerings, LeadingAge Ohio and Plante Moran have teamed to offer a series of affordable, up-to-date distance learning educational sessions about the process of completing the Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0, and the impact of its accuracy. The MDS is the focal point of everything in long-term care (survey, quality measures, Five-Star, corporate compliance, Nursing Home Compare data, and reimbursement).
Successful surveys (Traditional or QIS) demand accuracy. The information to consumers must accurately reflect the level of care and services the facility provides. Rightful reimbursement for Medicare and Medicaid requires an accurate MDS. Mandatory corporate compliance begins in March 2013 and all systems are part of the scrutiny. Each of these 13, 90-minute sessions is designed to flow from one to the next and fit the current needs of all disciplines involved in the assessment process. Each session will
have time for questions and answers. The team can hear and see the same information at the same time via audio format; no travel expenses for the facility and continuing education certificates are conveniently accessed via our website.
