This virtual workshop will look at the RAI process from the beginning to the end.  The MDS is used for both a clinical assessment and a financial assessment and this workshop will discuss the rules on scheduling these assessments and meeting the requirements individually and combined. From coding the MDS, we will then look at the CAA to care plan process.


This workshop is for individuals in long-term care who coordinate and/or code the MDS.  Typically, this is an RN or LPN with the title of MDS Coordinator or Care Plan Coordinator.  This is also for the DON or ADM who needs a better understanding of the complexity of the RAI process.



  • Describe the RAI process
  • Describe the required forms and schedule completion of the RAI process.
  • Review MDS items that are reflected in PPS reimbursement.
  • Complete the RAI, including MDS, CAA and care plans
  • Identify mechanisms for effective communications, as well as remaining current with the RAI process.
