This session will provide an overview of the new QMs and insights that will help guide the process and changes needed to ensure the new outcome rates accurately reflect the care provided. Evaluating the impact on facility quality ratings of significant changes in the measurement tool such as use of resident interviews (pain, mood) and standardized scales (BIMS, PHQ-9) will be discussed.
