Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has made several changes to the Quality Measure Domain (QM) of the 5- Star Quality Rating System, as well as the staffing data submission. The new quality measures are related to successful discharges to the community, emergency department visits, re-hospitalization, and improvement and maintenance of a resident’s function. This session will primarily focus on the impact of the new changes in the overall star rating and its effect on the facilities, with a particular emphasis on practical approaches, case studies, and QAPI interventions to improve on the new quality measures.

Learning Objectives:
(1) Describe the 5-star quality rating system and its three domains.
(2) Identify the new developments in staffing data submission- Payroll Based Journal (PBJ).
(3) Explain the five new quality measures (QM), QAPI interventions to successfully improve quality and the new QM Metrix.
