As reported on Friday, October 4th, CMS has posted a revision to the PDPM DLL Package to correct four bugs that were identified after the V1.0002 release (September 27, 2019). The package contains updated test files and documentation. This revision package will be installed by your EMR vendor, likely today or this evening so check for such a message within your EMR and/or an email message from your EMR vendor. Last week, many EMR vendors recommended that their customers not lock or transmit MDS records until this fix was provided by CMS and they were able to install it in your software.
