Module 1: The MDS 3.0 Assessment: Regulatory Requirements, Scheduling, Assessment Types and Connection of Data to Payment (PDPM), QM’s and Care Planning

Understanding of the MDS 3.0 Assessment process begins with a review of the basic definitions, structure of the assessment document and the regulatory scheduling of various assessment types.
Skilled facility staff need to be aware of these requirements because they are the structure for documentation formats and timing of assessment tasks. This interactive session will discuss the fundamental guidelines and requirements members of the IDT and front-line care delivery staff need to use for their documentation of care and observations of the residents status. Accurate, timely documentation produces accurate payment rates, Quality Measures, and outcome statistics.

Objectives
1. Identify the regulatory structure of the Assessment Process as it establishes the scheduling and content of MDS 3.0 Assessments.
2. Describe the components of documentation that all staff and consultants need to understand to support accurate data for the MDS 3.0
3. Review the specific data that has a significant impact of PDPM payment, Quality Measures, and outcome statistics.

Module 2: MDS Interviews – MDS 3.0 Sections C, D, F, G, J, Q. The timing, content, scoring and documentation of interviews in the medical record

A significant part of the MDS 3.0 assessment process is connected to “Resident Voice.” The current Assessment process has 6 interviews on the admission assessment, 5 interviews on the annual assessment and 3 interviews on the Quarterly Assessment. This session will review the components of each interview and staff assessment to prepare all staff for the data collection to this area. Very few staff are aware of the purpose and the importance of documentation of the residents reaction to care, mood issues and basic cognitive issues. All staff need to understand the interview process and the focus of each tool so they can document issues properly. Discussion will include case examples and documentation tools.

Objectives
1. Identify the 6 interviews in the MDS 3.0 Assessment process on their contribution to “Resident Voice.”
2. Describe the unique structure of each interview and the impact of the scoring in the data base.
3. Discuss proper interviewing techniques and the general guidelines on Appendix D of the RAI Manual.

Module 3: MDS Clinical Data– Sections B, E, H, J, L – Definitions, documentation coding instructions and impact on Payment (PDPM)

The MDS 3.0 Assessment process relies on the directions, definitions, and steps for the Assessment in the RAI Manual. The sections of the MDS that are focused on this session have significant very specific guidance for the clinical and behavioral staff. Documentation content and timelines will be identified, and case studies will be discussed. Many of the processes and timelines need to become part of the facility data collection process. This session will present strategies to improve staff understanding of the specific definitions, measurements, and criteria for the data collection. The discussion will be focused on the knowledge base of the IDT and clinical staff and their understanding of the importance of the accuracy documentation and clinical definitions. Specific case examples will be discussed.

Objectives 
1. Identify specific definitions and documentation guidance in the RAI Manual that should direct documentation content in the medical record.
2. Discuss specific case examples to demonstrate the proper staff documentation formats.
3. List the specific staff members that have responsibility for documentation in the record that supports MDS data.

Module 4: Functional Assessment Data Documentation MDS 3.0 Section G and Section GG for clinical staff, Therapy and Admissions

The current MDS 3.0 Assessment for significant data focus on prior level for function, observed functional abilities and goals and Activities of Daily Living Assistance. These are two separate sections of coding on the MDS with very specific different coding platforms. This session will identify the difference between Section G and Section GG coding, item definitions, timelines for data collection and use of data for QM’s and Payment programs. All staff need to understand the difference and importance of coding 24 hours a day for the first 3 days of the stay for Section GG usual performance and correct tracking of ADL performance and support for Section G for the entire assessment reference period. These are two difference sets of data and each have important implications. The specific definitions for each section will be discussed and case examples will be included.

Objectives
1. Discuss the importance of ADL performance and Functional skills – usual performance accuracy.
2. Identify the two specific time frames, definitions, and performance coding.
3. Review strategies to achieve accuracy in both areas of documentation.

Module 5: Clinical Measurements, Outcomes, and Documentation Requirements in the MDS 3.0 Assessment Sections J, K, M, N and O

The quality and accuracy of the MDS 3.0 assessment data base is driven by the specific documentation in the medical record. Most facilities do not have the proper measurements, treatment specifics and observations in the documentation to support assessment coding. This session will focus on the specifics that members of the IDT and front-line staff need to understand to improve the quality of the documentation. Most facilities have not been able to train staff and the goal of this program is to provide specific examples and guidelines for documentation. Regulatory and payment success relies on the accuracy and completeness of specific care delivery services and clinical observations. A candid, specific, practical presentation of the specific documentation needed to produce accurate assessment data on all resident records and support payment rates during an audit.

Objectives
1. Identify the clinical and behavioral documentation that contributes to the MDS 3.0 data base.
2. Describe the specific definitions and coding in the RAI MDS 3.0 Manual that should direct documentation in the medical record.
3. Discuss examples of documentation in nurse’s notes, IDT notes and direct care staff reporting that are complete and accurate.

Module 6: The Impact of Diagnoses Coding in Section I of the MDS 3.0 on Admission Documentation, Assessment Accuracy and PDPM Payment

Diagnosis coding on the MDS 3.0 has a very high impact on many aspects of the assessment data – care planning and accurate PDPM payment levels. All members of the IDT and the care delivery staff need to understand the importance of accurate, timely validated diagnostic codes that are acceptable to CMS. This session will discuss the importance of diagnostic documentation and the need to collect as much information from the elder, family, transfer records and the physician during the first 7 days of the stay. All staff need to gather information and help the MDS Manager correlate accurate data for the entire MDS. Case examples will be discussed focused on the role that all staff have in the process. The Payment system (PDPM) relies on a significant number of diagnostic codes to establish payment rates. All members of the team need to be aware of their contribution to documentation in the record during the assessment reference period.

Objectives
1. Describe the importance of compete, accurate, validated diagnostic coding on all assessments.
2. Identify the responsibility of all staff to gather information from the elder, family, transfer records and other sources to create an accurate diagnostic record.
3. Discuss the importance of interaction among all members of the team to document accurate complete data.
