MDS Competency

Competent Harmony Healthcare International MDS

This 3-Day course offers participants a more comprehensive understanding of the RAI process.  Participants will spend half of the course time learning how to accurately code the MDS 3.0 assessment tool by moving through the tools section by section.  The Care Area Assessments (CAAs) will be introduced as the vital link between the MDS 3.0 and the accurate and resident specific Care Plan. 

Participants will learn how to successfully manage the OBRA schedule and the PPS schedule, including the scheduled and unscheduled assessments.  A detailed discussion of ADL coding and ADL scoring will provide the participant with the tools to more successfully manage ARD selection and to teach the nursing team how to document ADLs more accurately.  This course is ideal for MDS coordinators who have one year of experience or less, as it will provide the opportunity to move through basic MDS management concepts at a slow pace. 

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and glean provider-specific clarifications that can be applied immediately upon returning to work. This course is provided Privately or Publicly.
