October MDS Changes- Section Q

The MDS 3.0 version v1.8.11 final item sets and RAI guidance have been released, and substantial changes were made to several sections. 
Changes made to section Q (Participation in Assessment and Goal Setting) include:
  • Reformatting of Question Q0100 (Participation in Assessment) to Q0110 (Participation in Assessment and Goal Setting)
  • Addition of a new question: Q0620, Reason Referral to Local Contact Agency (LCA) Not Made
AHCA has created an MDS Section Q resource document to help providers breakdown the changes. The information in the resource document outlines key changes to MDS Section Q, Coding Instructions/RAI Guidelines for each item, and Actions to Consider for implementation across your facility.
