Countdown to MDS Changes 10/1/23

Join us for a Webinar September 7, 2023 @2 pm EDT

October 1st is almost upon us, is your facility prepared for the new MDS and the changes that come with it?

MDS version 1.18.11 is not merely a simple update; it will impact reimbursement, care planning, and quality measurement.

The new version of the MDS eliminates section G from the OBRA assessment, which has ramifications on care planning, quality of care, and reimbursement, among other areas.  New items are added that include data for the new QRP Transfer of Health Information measure and SPADES.

This webinar will highlight the new MDS and provide valuable information and best practices to ensure the interdisciplinary team is prepared and ready for success!

WHEN: September 7, 2023 @2 pm EDT
