Outsourced MDS Support Services

For today’s long-term care facilities, the Minimum Data Set (MDS) assessment tool plays a key role in determining Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement and monitoring the quality of resident care. RKL’s Senior Living Services Consulting Group understands that these factors are just the start. Our team of MDS consultants help organizations like yours translate assessment results into opportunities to ensure appropriate reimbursement, bolster regulatory compliance, improve risk management and more.

Benefits We Deliver

Focused & Customized Support

Since its introduction in 1990, the MDS assessment has grown in size (two pages to 50+) and scope. It requires a high level of organization, understanding and attention to detail. Let us take MDS responsibilities off your already full plate. Whether you need interim help, want to improve department management or prefer to fully outsource your MDS function, our MDS consultants are here to help when and how you need us.

On-Demand Expertise

If you’re struggling to fill MDS roles or find an experienced nurse familiar with the MDS process, your organization is not alone. We designed our outsourced MDS model to help address these recruiting challenges. Tap into our MDS knowledge on a short or long-term basis. We can even onboard or train your new MDS hires. Let us help you prevent revenue loss and avoid possible fines from MDS non-compliance.

Value Beyond Compliance

We know the importance of the MDS tool and how its data points play into long-term sustainability and success. Partnering with RKL for outsourced MDS support means that your assessment will be scheduled and completed, but we won’t stop there. We’ll also help you overcome common MDS challenges and recommend process, clinical and financial improvements.
