Web-based modules address Section GG

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is offering web-based training modules on Section GG of the patient assessment instruments for each post-acute care setting: long-term care hospital, inpatient rehabilitation facility, skilled-nursing facility and home health. Section GG, implemented as a result of the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act, focuses on patients’ functional abilities and goals. 

The interactive training includes background information on the Act and requirements for standardized data collection, as well as specific guidance for completing Section GG for each post-acute care setting.
