RAC-CTA Certification Virtual Workshop 12/5/2023 by Zimmet Healthcare

  • Registration Closed

The Resident Assessment Coordinator-Certified Advanced (RAC-CTA®) program is an advanced certification for clinical reimbursement leaders. This workshop provides advanced principles of clinical reimbursement, Medicare program compliance and integrity, RAI/MDS program integrity, leadership, ethical practice, managing medical review, accurate ICD-10 diagnosis coding, advanced strategies for payment oversight, and improving a facility’s quality measurement in all CMS quality programs. Whether you are a clinical reimbursement specialist in a regional, state, or national consultant, or are a professional in any aspect of MDS and Medicare compliance and oversight, this program will help you excel as a reimbursement leader. 

The RAC-CTA certification program consists of 10 education courses designed for post-acute care professionals with at least 1-2 years of experience with the MDS/RAI process. If you have less experience, consider MDS Essentials as a foundation to get you started and make sure you’re prepared to succeed in the RAC-CTA program. To earn the RAC-CTA credential, you must successfully complete the 10 associated final certification exams with a score of 80% or higher. There are three exam attempts per course. Recertification is required every two years. 

This workshop will be hosted online, through a virtual platform. Your registration includes four days of instruction from a Master Teacher, access to digital workshop materials, and access to the ten certification exams. We suggest downloading and saving each PDF to a device of your choice. Although not required, you may print the PDFs at your own expense. If you decide to print your materials, please remember that changes and updates are continually incorporated into the workshop materials.

All times are listed in Eastern Time (ET). If you are unsure what time this workshop will begin where you are, please use this link as a quick reference: www.worldtimebuddy.com
