WHAT'S NEW - MDS
Updates: SNF Review and Correct Report & Confidential Feedback Report Issues
Please be advised that the submission deadline for Q3 2017 MDS data has been modified to May 15, 2018. The SNF Review and Correct Report has been updated to reflect that both Q1 and Q2 2017 are “Open”. Data for all measures for Q1 2017 have been recalculated for any assessment records that have been received since the original Q1 2017 submission deadline of August 15, 2017.
The SNF Review and Correct report is available in the SNF Quality Reporting Program report category in CASPER. Providers are encouraged to request the report to view updated measure results. The updated report should replace versions of the report previously requested.
Note you may want to only run one quarter at a time instead of multiple quarters at once. CMS is currently working on an issue related to the reporting quarters being displayed in random order instead of descending order with the newest quarter listed first when the report is run for more than one quarter. This will be corrected in early December.
The remaining issue, affecting the calculation of the Application of Percent of LTCH Patients with Admission and Discharge Functional Assessment and a Care Plan that Addresses Function (NQF #2631), is still being corrected and tested. You will be notified once this issue has been resolved in early December. At that time, the data for this measure will be recalculated and the updated results will be available on the Review and Correct Report.
CMS has released the updated RAI Manual v1.15 and MDS Item sets, effective October 1, 2017. An overview of some of the changes include:
You can locate the new Manual v1.15 on the CMS website here: MDS 3.0 RAI Manual (scroll down to Related Links, then choose number 2: MDS 3.0 RAI Manual v1.15 and Change Tables October 1, 2017).
