CMS announced they will offer live streaming of the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Quality Reporting Program (QRP) Provider Training held on June 21 and 22, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia. Training session recordings will also be posted to the CMS YouTube site several weeks after the event.

If you are interested in viewing the event in real time, you can access the training via streaming media between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. ET on June 21, 2016, and between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. ET on June 22, 2016.

The focus of this train-the-trainer event is to provide SNFs with an overview of the requirements under the IMPACT Act and the QRP including:
  • Information about the Quality Measures included in the SNF QRP; 
  • Guidance on coding the Minimum Data Set (MDS)--Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) to comply with the QRP requirements; and
  • Information on data submission and reporting aimed at helping providers use CMS tools to ensure providers are compliant with the submission requirements. 
The materials for the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Quality Reporting Program (QRP) Provider Training have been posted to the CMS website. The links to the presentations are located at the bottom of the page under Downloads.
