Using MDS 3.0 as an Engine for High Quality Individualized Care

In 2012, Missouri was selected by Pioneer Network to participate in the National Learning Collaborative: Using MDS 3.0 as an Engine for High Quality Individualized Care.  In Missouri, 19 homes completed the 16-month collaborative, putting in place four foundational practices – consistent assignment, huddles, involving CNAs in care planning, and Quality Improvement closest to the resident – and then using the practices to individualize care for improvements in high priority clinical areas, such as reducing falls, alarms, rehospitalizations, antipsychotic medications, and pressure ulcers.  View the video documenting some of the incredible results experienced by Missouri homes that participated:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8teFIKGLHg.

The national collaborative has concluded, but it is not too late for your team!  MC5 and Primaris are partnering to bring the learning collaborate tools to the East Central Region.  Monthly meetings will be facilitated by Primaris Program Manager Nursing Home Services, Alexis Roam, MSN, RN.  To learn more and join the collaborative, plan to attend the next East Central MC5 meeting.  Your home does not have to be in the East Central region to participate.  Location:  Presbyterian Manor, 1200 Homelife Plaza, Rolla.  RSVP to Mary Ehrenreich at 314-801-0462 or mary.ehrenreich@alz.org; or Tracy Rosenow at 573-265-3271 or tracy.rosenow@mvc.dps.mo.gov.
