Webinar: The Five-Star Quality Rating System What You Need to Know

January 16, 2020 | 2:00 - 3:00 PM
CMS’s Five-Star Quality Rating System has grown in importance since 2008. It is used to gauge nursing home quality.  Nursing Homes will be increasingly foreclosed from participating in Medicare, provider referral networks, various innovative Medicare payment arrangements and opportunities for waiver of the 3-day prior hospital stay requirement unless they have at least a 3-Star overall rating.  Essentially, such a facility may be unable to receive sufficient numbers of admission referrals and Medicare payments in the future. A valuable LeadingAge Kansas member benefit is the Five-Star Analysis Report provided via email link quarterly. In this session participants will learn how to use this report in a data informed approach to quality.

Please join Susan Chenail RN, CCM, RAC-CT Senior Quality Improvement Analyst, LeadingAge New York as she provides an in-depth analysis of the report for a Kansas facility.
