    This webinar will address these issues as well as other changes you can expect to the Nursing Home Compare website and the 5-Star Rating system.

CMS plans to publicly release six short-stay and twelve long-stay MDS 3.0 Quality Measures, posting them on Nursing Home Compare on or about July 19th.

Knowing measure composition, risk adjustment method used, and the impact from applied definitions are important to understanding your measure outcomes. The webinar will address these issues as well as other changes you can expect to the Nursing Home Compare website and the 5-Star Rating system.
