SNF Guidance Training Program

Wednesday, June 21, 2023

12:30pm to 5:00pm (ET)

Welcome to the SNF MDS 3.0 Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) v1.18.11 Guidance Training Program!

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is offering a virtual training program that provides instruction on the 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 training is part of a comprehensive strategy to ensure SNF providers have access to the educational materials necessary to promote understanding of and compliance with changes in reporting requirements associated with the SNF Quality Reporting Program (QRP). These changes 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 being introduced in 2023 to ensure more consistent reporting and evaluation across post-acute care settings. 

The Training Consists of two parts:

Part 1- Learn

Watch the recorded training webinars that deliver foundational knowledge to assist in learning the new items and guidance. These videos are intended to be viewed in advance of the Part 2 live event and are available now. A supplemental Capstone Case Study is also available to give providers additional practice in coding the new/revised data elements. 

Part 2- Practice

Attend the live, virtual workshop sessions that provide practice coding scenarios on select items covered in the Part 1 training webinars.


Don’t forget to complete the pre-conference videos and activities!


Remember to register for the June 21, 2023 coding workshops!
