Impact Act Boot Camp Webinar Series

Presented by Michele Cournan, DNP RN CRRN ANP-BC, Quality/Risk Manager, Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital, Schenectady, NY

The IMPACT Act* has arrived to your post-acute care (PAC) setting. Have you stayed in the know of all of the changes? Individual practitioners in Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs), Long-Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs), Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs), and Home Health Agencies (HHAs) all have prepared for the requirement to submit standardized assessment data to CMS. The reporting requirements have put new strategies in place for reporting assessment items.

The ARN IMPACT Act Boot Camp is a series of three 75-minute webinars. Each session highlights specific Quality Indicators. Discussions include scoring, documentation, and goal setting.

Michele Cournan has more than 20 years of experience in rehabilitation, in both IRF and SNF settings. Michele has been focusing efforts on the IMPACT Act since 2015 examining the significance of these changes to post-acute care settings.
