MDS Training from CMS for RAI Changes

CMS is offering a virtual training program that provides instruction on the updated guidance for the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) v1.18.11 Manual and Item Set.

This guidance will affect reporting requirements associated with the SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP) that will go into effect on October 1, 2023. A major focus of this training will be on the cross-setting implementation of the standardized patient assessment data elements to ensure more consistent reporting and evaluation across post-acute care settings.

The training program consists of two parts:

  • Part 1: Consists of pre-recorded training webinars available on CMS YouTube. These videos include approximately 4 hours of content and are intended to be viewed in advance of the Part 2 live event.
  • Part 2: Consists of live, virtual workshop sessions on June 21st between 10:30pm and 3pm MST. Attendees must register.

Additional training resources are located on the SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP) Training page.  ​
