Five Star: Changes in 2015

Karen Morris in Clinical & Quality

On February 3rd, Mark Parkinson and David Gifford presented a webinar for the AHCA membership on the 2015 changes to the Five Star system and their implications for providers. Attached are the power point slides from that presentation. The audio recording is now available on the AHCA website. Sign in to the members only section of the website and click on “Events” and “Member Briefings.” It is anticipated that the long and short term quality measures for antipsychotic use will be included in the Quality Measures used to calculate the QM measure for Five Star beginning the end of this month. We again encourage you to use LTC Trend Tracker, a free AHCA member service, to track and trend your facility’s data, including data that effects your Five Star rating.
