Posting of MDS 3 QMs Delayed

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has notified the American Health Care Association that the MDS 3.0 Quality Measures (QMs) will not be posted on Nursing Home Compare this month as originally expected.  According to the CMS office of Clinical Standards and Quality, CMS will provide the new MDS QMs to individual nursing facilities but they are not yet ready for public posting.  CMS is still reviewing the data but has not made a final decision on when the Quality Measures will become public.  CMS is targeting July for the posting of the QMs.
