On 7/31/17 CMS announced in the Final Rule that the current PPS systems will be replaced by the Resident Classification System (RSC-1). The shift to RCS-1 is very complicated and will be extremely confusing for providers. The majority of the assumptions in RCS-1 are based on claims history and MDS data submitted. This session will help providers understand and prepare for the change from PPS to RCS.

“I wanted to tell you how informative and thought-provoking the ICD-10 seminar was. Several of the attendees approached me afterward and told me how much they learned. They felt confident in being able to assign ICD-10 codes. Kristin did a great job! She answered questions readily and made a very intimidating subject seem logical.”Attendee at one of Celtic’s educational seminars
“Maureen has helped us increase from a 1-star in Quality Measures and today we are a mere 5 points from a 4-star. She has also assisted us with survey preparation, in order to improve our survey star rating as well. Her services are highly recommended and my only regret is that we did not implement services quickly enough when started seeing problems. If we had, we could have been included in the ACO we were trying to be considered for. If you are starting to see potential issues with your quality metrics, contact her right away! Maureen and her team not only report findings, they assist us in correcting the issues and improving our performance. Celtic Consulting provides the ‘whole package’.”Celtic Consulting Client
