Description

This session will present the widely used and applied Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) quality measures (QMs) that affect skilled nursing facility (SNF) five-star quality ratings. The presentation will cover the contributions of the three components of the five-star QMs—the survey process, the staffing component, and the minimum data set (MDS)—as well as CMS data-based QMs. It also will cover how the different components to the five-star rating system are measured, triggered, and translated into a five-star rating. Quality improvement approaches to influence the various components will be introduced.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe the components of the CMS Five-Star SNF rating.
  • Discuss the impact of the CMS surveys and staffing component on the Five-Star rating.
  • Explain how the MDS triggers the quality metrix.
  • Discuss how to make a positive impact on the quality metrix in your facilities.
