REGISTRATION OPEN – SNF QRP Provider In-Person Training Event, August 13 and 14, 2019

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will be hosting a 2-day Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Quality Reporting Program (QRP) in-person ‘Train the Trainer’ event for providers on August 13 and 14, 2019, at the Four Seasons Hotel, 200 International Drive, Baltimore, MD 21202. This event will be open to all SNF providers, associations, and organizations.

Like the May 2019 SNF QRP Provider Training, the primary focus of this 'Train-the-Trainer’ event will be to provide those responsible for training staff at SNFs with information about:

·        The transition to the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) which becomes effective on October 1, 2019.

·        A review of SNF QRP changes and updates to the Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 Version 1.16.0, which became effective October 1, 2018.

·        An overview of the eleven SNF QRP Quality Measures.

An interactive session on the use of reports to identify opportunities for process improvement and utilize information contained in reports available via the Certification And Survey Provider Enhanced Reports (CASPER) system to develop quality improvement plans.

During this event, presenters will incorporate additional information into their presentations based on questions received from participants during the May training.
