Get Ready for QRP and PDPM MDS with Hours Calculators

While the big focus in long-term care has been directed toward the recent announcement of the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM), let’s not ignore the extensive changes we have coming this October. Because of the SNF Quality Reporting Program (SNF QRP), we have long anticipated most of the additions to the MDS; nonetheless, it is important to analyze how these changes will impact the MDS nursing hours. AANAC has created a tool to assist members in determining their facility’s MDS hours beginning this Oct. 1, 2018 and another to assist with the planning for needed hours when the PDPM begins, Oct. 1, 2019.  

To instantly access these two tools, simply complete the form below.
