On November 30 CMS posted a follow-up to the MDS 3.0 RAI User's Manual update that was released November 7. The follow-up consists of revised pages that correct inconsistencies that were first brought to the attention of CMS by the MED-PASS/Heaton team.
Both the comprehensive and the standard versions of the MED-PASS MDS 3.0 RAI User Manual have been updated and are now available to ship. To learn more about these manuals and place orders, see below.
MED-PASS's MDS Navigator® 3.0 and MDS Assessment Planner (MAP) have both been updated and are now available.
Additionally, the MDS item sets MDS 3.0 Nursing Home Comprehensive (NC) Item Set (item # CP9100H-A) and MDS 3.0 Nursing Home PPS (NP) Item Set / Nursing Home Quarterly (NQ) Item Set (item CP9101H-A) were updated September 2012 to reflect revised Quality Measures that concern the use of antipsychotic medications for nursing home residents and seasonal influenza vaccination.
