The MDS QM reports will be updated to reflect measure updates identified in the MDS 3.0 QM User’s Manual v12.1 available at www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/NursingHomeQualityInits/NHQIQualityMeasures.html, effective October 1, 2019.
Additionally, the previous SNF QRP Percent of Residents with Pressure Ulcers That are New or Worsened (S002.02) has been added to the MDS QM reports and the MDS Provider Preview and Resident-level Preview Report to allow for continued tracking on this measure.
While being updated, the following reports will not be available from the CASPER system:
- MDS 3.0 Facility Level Quality Measure Report
- MDS 3.0 Resident Level Quality Measure Report
- MDS 3.0 Quality Measure Monthly Comparison Report
- MDS 3.0 Facility Characteristics Report (add CMS logo, update privacy statement)
Once the report updates have completed, an additional memo will be sent.
