Minimum Data Set (MDS) (CHE 733)Since the advent of the Resident Assessment Instrument, Long Term Care professionals at all levels have continued to develop their skills in assessment, determination of strengths and areas of improvement, planning of interventions and evaluation of those interventions in concert with the residents they serve. The Minimum Data Set, one component of the RAI, has undergone continuous change since it was first developed, and most recently has incorporated alterations in several sections took effect April 1, 2012. This class will review the known changes in the instrument itself, help participants identify ways to use the data gathered to improve the validity and integrity of their submissions, and how they might use the information they process to provide even more individualized care to their residents. We will track and discuss the changes made from Version 1.05 to Version 1.08 of the MDS 3.0 OBRA and review the item changes more closely in Chapters I, II, and III, Sections A, E, G,I, J,K, M, N, O, Q, V, and X.
We will touch upon the important points of the use of the tool in the Medicare PPS billing process, including EOT-OMRA, EOT-R OMRA and the COT-OMRA.
