October 9 & 10, 2012: RAI Process from Start to Finish
This workshop will look at the RAI process from beginning to end. The Minimum Data Set (MDS) is used for both a clinical and financial assessment and this workshop will discuss the rules on scheduling these assessments and meeting the requirements individually and combined. Item-by-item coding will be reviewed. From coding the MDS the workshop will then look at the CAA to care plan process. An overview of the Medicare requirements that need to be followed for appropriate reimbursement will be discussed. This workshop is for individuals in long-term care, who coordinate and/or code, the MDS and for the DON or administrator who needs a better understanding of the complexity of the RAI process. New MDS Coordinators and those who need a refresher are strongly encouraged to attend.
