This manual is designed to assist organizations in identifying how a resident will “trigger” for a quality measure based on quality measure specifications and the coding of the MDS 3.0 Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI). A snapshot definition is given for the 21 Quality Measures currently included on the CASPER MDS 3.0 Facility Level Quality Measure Report. 

Snapshot definitions for other Quality Measures not on the CASPER Reports but are included on Nursing Home Compare.

This edition also includes definitions for the new CMS Claims-Based Quality Measures.
