Join us for our monthly training sessions focusing on regulatory changes, MDS updates, evidenced-based practice, research and best methods for interdisciplinary team engagement. Our Reflections webinar series is always in synch with “real-world” insights. Our goal is to provide community IDT teams including Administrators, MDS Coordinators, Nurses, and Social Services directors, and therapists with interactive insights on how to effectively assimilate changes in policy and reimbursement with the highest level of patient care.

Data Speaks is an educational partnership brought to you by Broad River Rehab, the American Association of Post-Acute Care Nursing (AAPACN) and the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA). This series is designed to help you make sense of the huge amount of data available to you with a focus on building a data-driven organization. These courses often offer NAB credit! Please contact us for more information.
Our webinars answer the question, “What does your data say about you?” Data, in raw form are just numbers and codes on a page. In its purest form, without effective analytics data does not seem to provide much in meaningful input. Data, however, when examined strategically, has a voice, it comes to life, it can in fact speak volumes about you. Data speaks about the care you deliver, it provides insight into your treatment patterns, and data is used deliberately by CMS to compare communities to others in their locality and across the nation.
Data Speaks webinar series allow attendees access to CMS data through a strategic partnership presenters have with the CMS Research Data Assistance Center or ResDAC.
