Finding Your Perfect MDS Coordinator Just Got Easier

Ensure accurate reimbursement and say goodbye to new hire headaches with Polaris Group's Remote MDS Program.

Accurate reimbursement through outsourced and remote MDS coordinators

Finding and retaining a skilled MDS coordinator has never been more important or more difficult. Because staffing shortages have become the norm rather than exception in long-term care communities, many are being forced to ask their staff to take on additional responsibilities. This means higher levels of burnout and significant challenges when it comes to meeting MDS and nurse assessment requirements. With Polaris Group's Remote MDS Program, you can stop your search and give your MDS assessments the attention they deserve.

"Peachtree Hills Place recently learned that we got a deficiency free survey!  I am so excited for our team, but this would not have been possible without our Polaris MDS Coordinator's help.  I want to say thank you for all the hours she put into educating us and making us look good.  This team has stepped up in so many ways and I am very proud of them!"
