Feb 7 -- The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) invites comments by April 10, 2023 regarding the Minimum Data Set 3.0 Nursing Home and Swing Bed Prospective Payment System (PPS) for the collection of data related to the Patient Driven Payment Model and the Skilled Nursing Facility Quality Reporting Program (QRP).

The MDS is a uniform instrument used in every Medicare/Medicaid certified nursing home in the United States to assess resident condition. It was developed in response to the Landmark Institute of Medicine (IOM) Report on Nursing Home Quality in 1987 where the MDS was seen
as a critical component in efforts to improve the quality of care in nursing homes. From its inception, the MDS was intended to serve several purposes:
(1) Collect data to inform care plans
(2) To generate quality indicators to evaluate nursing homes and guide improvement interventions
(3) To serve as a data source for nursing home payment systems.
CMS uses the MDS 3.0 PPS Item Set to collect the data used to reimburse skilled nursing facilities for SNF-level care furnished to Medicare beneficiaries and to collect information for quality measures and standardized patient assessment data under the SNF QRP.
