Changing regulatory and payment integrity focus by federal agencies requires that operational and clinical managers monitor the facility database to identify risk areas that could precipitate increased audit and survey activity. The primary source of data in the facility database is created by the MDS 3.0 assessments. This session, the first in a series, will identify specific data collection and transmission issues that are being used by CMS to evaluate facility specific database accuracy (payment) and data patterns that precipitate increased regulatory activity. This session will identify components of the facility data base that must be monitored internally to reduce reporting errors. Case examples of staff training and competency programs will be discussed as well as documentation formats to diminish errors or data omissions.
