It’s time for providers to start shoring up processes to successfully implement big changes to the Minimum Data Set assessment form that will soon be in play. Failure to get ready — starting this month, in fact — could wind up costing providers $40 to $60 per patient day. That’s one warning from Leah Klusch, the executive director of The Alliance Training Center.

One of the nation’s foremost MDS experts, Klusch shares pivotal steps for improving readiness for the next assessment process, which goes live Oct. 1, 2023. Now is the time for team members to problem solve and share what they know, she says in this podcast moderated by McKnight’s Executive Editor James M. Berklan.
