Random Moment Time Study (RMTS)
A federally accepted statistically valid random sampling technique that determines what portion of the selected group of participant’s workload is spent performing Medicaid reimbursable activities. The program is run 3 quarters a school year. Each district is responsible for supplying the state with a list of employed professionals that could provide direct services to students at any given point in time during a quarter.
If a participant/professional is selected for a random moment, the participant must follow the instructions provided in an email from Fairbanks to which they will login to a specified website and respond to three to four questions.
2. What were you doing?
If you do not select a pre-defined answer, it will be necessary to be as specific as possible when writing your response. Document exactly what issues, ideas, or services were being conveyed at that time.
“I was in a meeting.” is too vague. “I was in a meeting explaining a special education student’s annual goals to the student’s parent.”includes an appropriate level of detail.
It is important that we know what was being discussed (or being done) so that the response may be coded properly. We need to know if the topic was focused on academic, behavioral, administrative, or medical concerns.
3. Why were you performing the activity?
If you do not select a pre-defined answer, it will be necessary for you to describe why you were performing the activity. Be as specific as possible when writing your response.
“It is a requirement of my job.” is too vague. “I was in a meeting to provide information to a parent about an evaluation/assessment for health related services.”includes an appropriate level of detail.
It is important that we know why the activity was performed so that the response may be coded properly. We need to know if the topic was focused on academic, behavioral, administrative, or medical concerns.
