Published by: ellyadmin

Virtual Workshop Summary

As the profession recovers from the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, public quality data is critical in enticing new customers to our centers. This session will provide all the information necessary to help nursing centers improve their CMS 5 Star rating through increased knowledge of quality measures. Topics will include how the 5 Star ratings are calculated, details regarding publicly reported quality measure calculations and quality improvement techniques. Attendees will learn about risk adjustments used in quality measure calculations, how discharged residents affect ratings, and how to prioritize measures for improvement.

Due to a health emergency with our presenter, the MI-NADONA Quality Measures Seminar originally scheduled for December 7, 2021 has been rescheduled to June 2, 2022.
