11.  MDS Accuracy: The Only Constant is Change

A revised Resident Assessment Instrument and MDS Item Sets (v1.18.11) have become effective for assessments with an Assessment Reference Date (ARD) of 10/1/2023 and after. This session will review the recent changes and discuss MDS coding accuracy and supporting documentation requirements. The focus of discussion will include addressing challenges related to new data elements, strategies for updating documentation processes, and evaluating the impact of these changes on care planning, discharge planning, quality measures, and reimbursement.
