CMS Seeks More Volunteer SNFs for PAC Data Collection Study – Upcoming Informational Webinars

Dan Ciolek

CMS is working with the RAND Corporation and its partners to implement the Standardized Patient Assessment Data Project. The goal of the project is to develop and test standardized assessment-based data elements across the PAC settings for purposes of complying with the requirements of the IMPACT Act of 2014. The project is being conducted over three years, from October 2015 – September 2018. PAC providers are being asked to assist with field data collection to test the standardized data elements for reliability, validity and ease of use in all four PAC settings (HHAs, IRFs, LTCHs, and SNFs). Patient assessment data element development and testing will focus on the following clinical domains as outlined in the IMPACT Act:

Cognitive Status
Mental Status (e.g., mood)
Medical Conditions (e.g., pain)
Impairments (e.g., incontinence and sensory impairments)
Other clinical topics (e.g., care preferences and medication reconciliation)

If interested, below is information about informational webinars coming up this month.  Each webinar lasts about 20 minutes and provides an opportunity for questions.
