CMS posted the updated Quality Measures manual – version 12.1 – in early September 2019 then pulled it off the website a short time later. The updated QM manual – still version 12.1 was posted again on October 8, 2019 in the form of a .zip file this time. In that .zip file, you’ll see these documents:
“One file related to the MDS 3.0 QM User’s Manual has been posted:
- MDS 3.0 QM User’s Manual V12.1contains detailed specifications for the MDS 3.0 quality measures. MDS 3.0 QM User’s Manual V12.1 is available under the Downloads section of this page.
- Quality Measure Identification Number by CMS Reporting Module Table V1.7documents CMS quality measures calculated using MDS 3.0 data and reported in a CMS reporting module. A unique CMS identification number is specified for each QM. The table is available under the Downloads section of this page.”
The 8-page Quality Measure Identification Number by CMS Reporting Module document is referenced in #2 above.
