Post-acute providers now can refer to four new Minimum Data Set training videos from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which answer frequently asked questions and clarify tricky items related to a variety of codes.

The videos, released Monday, cover parts of MDS 3.0 sections I, G, M and O. Specific topics include coding of respiratory therapy services; extensive and limited assistance; pressure ulcers and other wounds; and active diagnoses. CMS officials in the videos offer instruction and walk through example scenarios.

To further enhance their expertise in MDS coding, operators can tune in to tomorrow's opening webcast of the McKnight's Online Expo.

Renowned MDS authority and Alliance Training Center Executive Director Leah Klusch, RN, BSN, FACHCA, will lead the session on new and looming changes. The webcast starts at 10 a.m. Eastern.

Registration for the eighth annual Expo, which includes access to all five educational webcasts, is free of charge. One continuing education credit is available per webcast. Other topics include wound care practices, technology adoption, finding capital and preparing for surveys.

Attendees of the two-day event also will have access to the virtual exhibition hall, featuring 15 top vendors.
