Impact of MDS: Influence on Quality Measures Webinar

Proactive’s MDS experts will provide clarity on crucial performance areas impacted by the RAI process, avoiding common errors and driving outcomes through MDS accuracy in your facility.

Virtual

Impact of MDS

Description

This is the second session in a five-part webinar series hosted in partnership with Proactive LTC Consultants.

Quality measures are tools that help us measure or quantify healthcare processes, outcomes, patient perceptions, and systems that are associated with the ability to provide high-quality health care. The QM calculations have undergone significant revisions because of the updates to the MDS effective 10/1/2023. This session will review Quality Measure revisions, applicable definitions, and changes to how each MDS-based measure is calculated with a focus on ways in which facilities can improve quality outcomes with a QAPI driven approach to the data.

Objectives

  1. Participants will articulate key MDS data elements that are used to measure quality as it relates to functional outcomes.
  2. Participant will identify three quality measures that have been revised due to the transition from Section G to Section GG to assess functional status.
  3. Participants will develop an understanding of how to utilize the CASPER reports to Interpret data and establish benchmarks for quality improvement.

  • 30 min: Review of the MDS Quality Measures definitions and calculations with a focus on the MDS data element changes that impact the measures
  • 15 min: Review of CASPER QM reports used for QM monitoring
