Minimum Data Set (MDS) professionals play an integral role in completing assessments and monitoring the entire interdisciplinary process to meet state and federal requirements.

Unfortunately, there are not enough trained MDS Coordinators to meet the growing demand across the U.S.  There is currently a national shortage of MDS Coordinators, and this shortage is only going to escalate in the next five years.
