WHAT'S NEW - MDS

Notice: Five-Star Preview Reports:

The Five Star Preview Reports will be available on May 16th. To access these reports, select the CASPER Reporting link located on the CMS QIES Systems for Providers page. Once in the CASPER Reporting system, select the 'Folders' button and access the Five Star Report in your 'OK LTC facid' folder, where facid is the state-assigned Facility ID of your facility.

Nursing Home Compare will update with April's Five Star data on May 24, 2017.

Important Note: The 5 Star Helpline (800-839-9290) will be available May 22, 2017, through May 26, 2017. Please direct your inquiries to BetterCare@cms.hhs.gov if the Help Line is not available.

Security Update: Disabling and Deleting Accounts:

To better secure applications, QIES security requires each user to successfully login every 60 days, effective June 26, 2017. If this does not occur, the account will be disabled and can only be re-enabled by contacting the QTSO Help Desk at (800)339-9313.

Accounts that have no activity for more than 365 days will be deleted. Once your account is deleted, you will not be able to use or re-enable the account. If your account is deleted, you will need to request access through CMS as you did originally; you will be assigned a new User ID and password when the access is granted.

QIES users will continue to use QUMA to update passwords as required every 60 days, and use security questions to unlock accounts if the password is forgotten or the account is locked due to the password being entered incorrectly three times. 

Please forward this information to all staff who access CASPER Reports or submit MDS or OASIS assessments. 

If you have any questions concerning this information, please contact us at (405) 271-5278 or QTSO Help Desk at help@qtso.com or (800) 339-9313.
