Q: Who on my staff do I really need to train on the MDS 3.0 changes?

A: Because of the trickle-down impact of the MDS data, most members of your staff will need some level of training. You’re going to need detailed training for MDS coordinators and other staff members who have direct MDS responsibility. But the MDS also impacts billing, medical records, quality, and payment. Therefore, anyone who relies on the MDS for data has to have some type and level of training, albeit not as detailed as MDS coordinators.
