What You’ll Learn
When did the title of MDS Coordinator change to Nurse Assessment Coordinator (NAC)? Is there a difference? The change may have evolved with the duties that are correlated with the NAC’s job role. In addition to coordinating the MDS assessments and scheduling, the NAC should be educated in care planning, Medicare guidelines, reimbursement of Medicaid and Medicare, case mix, PDPM, triple check criteria, Quality Measures, Five Star Quality Rating System, SNF QRP and SNF VBP. The RAI system lays the foundation for assessment and planning that reflects care in the skilled nursing setting.
Attendees of this seminar will learn how to:
1. Discuss the differences between the roles of the Nurse Assessment Coordinator (NAC) and the MDS Coordinator
2. Review areas the NAC should be knowledgeable in relation to the RAI system
3. Identify the role of the NAC in QAPI/QAA
