Another sign of fall approaching is the annual release of the MDS 3.0 RAI Manual updates. The changes in Version 1.15 are not as dramatic as last year, but enough for 348 replacement pages to get your manual in shape by October 1, 2017!
This is a 90-minute webinar to assist you with bringing your MDS skills up-to-date and ready to go. You’ll learn about some wording changes that may seem small, but will certainly impact coding, such as the addition of the word “major” to the definition of the Significant Change in Status, along with a couple new guidelines for determining a decline in function. CMS’s new ADL Self-Performance Rule of 3 Algorithm in section G, which will help with coding accuracy, will also be covered. You’ll hear about the many clarifications and updated examples for section GG, as well as a surprise with the revised criteria for coding the Urinary Tract Infection item (I12300) in section I. There will also be a review of the coding information for the new items for opioids and antipsychotic medication review in section N (Medications) and personal alarms in section P (Restraints and Alarms).
This webinar will prepare you with the skills to:
Better manage the MDS item set “Medicare Part A Discharge Assessment” and section GG – when to do what, what to code, and better understand the clarifications and examples that have been added
Integrate the new resources for the coding of a urinary tract infection into daily practice
Understand who needs to be involved in the process of completing and documenting the antipsychotic medication gradual dose reduction
Review the new requirements to code personal alarms and identify the changes to the RAI Manual that impact your daily coding practices
