The MDS Data Specifications V3.01.0 (DRAFT) are now available for download under the Downloads section at the bottom of this webpage.  These specifications will go into effect on October 1, 2023.  There are a significant number of changes in this version, primarily in Sections A, D, GG, J, K, N, O and Q.  Also, Section G has been removed.  Please refer to the Item Change and Edit Change reports for details.  Note that these specifications no longer contain the OSA assessment; the specifications for that assessment will be posted separately at a later date.  A FINAL version of these specifications will be posted in May 2023.
