CMS PowerPoint Presentation: 2017 RAI User’s Manual Provider Updates
A PowerPoint presentation that highlights the major changes to the October 1, 2017 version of the RAI Manual has been posted to the CMS MDS webpage at www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/NursinghomeQualityInits/MDS30RAIManual.html. The presentation can be found as #6 in the Related Links section at the bottom of this webpage. Please note that the presentation provides an overview of the major changes but not all of the changes to the manual. Providers should also review the RAI Manual Change Tables and the manual itself to understand all of the changes.
