Guide for Surviving the Future of Long Term Care:
Proactive Planning for Section GG Implementation and More!
The Affordable Care Act (ACA), the IMPACT Act, SNF Value Based Purchasing (VBP), the Proposed Rule for Medicare and Medicaid and the SNF Quality Reporting Program all require changes to the Minimum Data Set (MDS 3.0) effective October 1, 2016. These changes include the addition of a SNF Medicare Part A PPS discharge assessment when a Medicare Part A stay ends and the addition of Section GG to capture functional status items from the Continuity Assessment and Evaluation (CARE) item set. Now more than ever, your interdisciplinary team must work together to meet the CMS Quality Initiative and have a clear understanding of these changes to ensure success. The speaker will assist facilities in negotiating through these changes. In addition to regulatory and reimbursement details, this seminar will provide your interdisciplinary team with valuable strategies to proactively develop policies and procedures to become a higher quality facility. This program will be of particular interest to Administrators, Nursing Management, Social Workers and Rehabilitation Staff.
The learner will:
1. identify the MDS Item Sets which require the completion of Section GG
2. Clarify the intent of Section GG items
3. Identify the major changes to the overall Five Star Rating System
4. Describe the 6 point rating scaling and the activity not attempted codes for Section GG
5. Describe the Quality Measure related to Section GG data
