Increase in ADL Help, Ability to Move Independently Worsened, & Improvement in Function: Analyzing 5-Star Functional Mobility Quality Measures and Applying QAPI Principles to Improve Functional Mobility Quality Measures

October 11, 2017 Live Webinar - 1:00 - 2:30 PM

 

Course Description:

 

This session will review the increase in ADL help, the ability to move independently worsened, and improvement in function quality measures that impact the Quality Measure component of the Nursing Home Compare Five-Star Quality Rating system. During the session, we will review how these measures are calculated and how they impact your overall Five-Star Quality Rating. The session will focus on best practices for reducing and preventing decline in ADL status and improving this quality measure using a QAPI framework with emphasis on reduction of common MDS coding errors and implementation of a facility specific Five Star road map action plan.  Sample tools will be shared for driving and sustaining Five Star Quality.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe how the increased need in ADL help, ability to move independently worsened, and improvement in function quality measures are calculated and impact the Five-Star Quality Rating score
  2. Describe best practices for improving and monitoring your quality measures in the area of increased need for ADL help, ability to move independently worsened, and improvement in function and impacting Five-Star Quality Rating score
  3. Describe a process for establishing priority QAPI goals and actions to improve communication of changes in ADL status
