Seminar Announcement: Therapy and the MDS Coordinator

CMP Scott Jackson in Education

First it is Nursing, then it is Rehabilitation, then it’s Nursing again, back and forth.  Where should your revenue be coming from?  Where should your focus lie?  Stop the madness and focus on the resident with a united team that are experts in their discipline but also solid generalist’s with all the major components of the Medicare system.  In this session, with humor and an interactive style, the presenters will provide you with a 10,000 foot perspective of how your program should work, how to build Part B Therapy and unite the team.  Utilizing case studies and real life examples (names have been changed to prevent embarrassing the uninformed) the presenters will walk you through the steps of daily Medicare management; an operational must.  You will gain a fresh perspective you can take back to your facility and systems you can implement now to increase your revenue and improve compliance.  As facility leaders, this information is critical to your ability to manage your team.  Your team needs this structure and new knowledge level.  Attend together, implement together and succeed together.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session participants will be able to:

  • Understand the major components that make up the Medicare program.
  • Create a base knowledge of each step from admissions to benefit period and skilling.
  • Learn the importance of managing the process with systems to review and communicate on a daily basis.
  • Strengthen your Part B Program.
  • Unite the teams; tools and systems to implement that pull clinical and therapy together.
