SNFs benefit from AAPACN certification

For a second year, analysts at Inovalon have found a positive correlation between star rating and AAPACN certification. Experts compared CMS Five Star site-of-care data with AAPACN certification data for facilities with a least one staff member holding one of the following certifications: Resident Assessment Coordinator-Certified (RAC-CT), Director of Nurse Services-Certified (DNS-CT), or QAPI Certified Professional (QCP). Join us to learn the findings in this year’s report including:
  • Improvements in star ratings with:
    • One certified staff
    • Two or more certified staff
    • Certified staff and facility using Inovalon software
  • Impact of certified staff on the number and severity of survey deficiencies
  • Performance in facilities with staff who have been certified for more than one year
Leading nurse educators, Laurie Laxton, Principal Clinical Educator with Inovalon, and Maureen McCarthy, President of Celtic Consulting and MDS Rescue, will discuss how AAPACN-certified staff are driving these data trends through:
  • Accurate assessment and coding
  • Proper care planning
  • Focus on quality care initiatives
This webinar is free for AAPACN members. CEUs are not available.
