Why Get Help With MDS System Management

Effective MDS Systems are instrumental to facility success.



MDS assessments directly impact PDPM and/or state case mix index reimbursement. Failing to complete MDS assessments punctually and comprehensively can result in delayed or decreased reimbursement

Quality Ratings


MDS system management ensures MDS assessments are completed accurately and on time. The information from MDS assessments is used in both the quality and staffing Five Star ratings. Individual metrics from the MDS assessment are incorporated into quality ratings, while overall acuity is used in staffing ratings.

Care Planning


Items coded on completed MDS assessments can trigger Care Area Assessments (CAAs). The Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) must then incorporate any identified CAAs, and the corresponding interventions, into the resident’s Care Plan. Properly-functioning MDS systems assist in the accuracy, timeliness, and integrity of  Care Plan documentation.
