What's New (2013/08/09)



System Updates

Pro-Tracking has been updated to be compliant with CMS' Changes for October 1, 2013. This will have minimal effect on current reports, and the October transition should be seamless. With the release of the Final RUG-IV specifications on August 8, 2013, any minor changes will be completed before October 1.

These changes include:
  1. The integration of the following new MDS items into our reporting system: K0710A1, K0710A2, K0710A3, K0710B1, K0710B2, K0710B3, O0400A3A, O0400B3A, O0400C3A, and O0420.

  2. Inclusion of MDS Item N0300 in NO and NOD assessments

  3. Inclusion of MDS Item H0200A in NO, NOD, NP, NQ, NS, and NSD assessments

  4. Inclusion of MDS Item M0210 in ND, NO, NOD, and NSD assessments

  5. Removal of MDS Items O0400** in ND assessments

Report Updates

The following reports have been updated for the October 1st changes:
  1. Pre-Screening Report: This report will be able to handle the new MDS Items and changes to the RUG-IV calculator.

  2. Custom MDS Reports Creator: All of the new MDS Items will be available in the Custom MDS Reports Creator. This will allow users to create new custom reports, tailored to their specific needs. Additionally, existing reports can be edited to include these new MDS Items.

  3. Occupational Therapy Report: This report uses K0700A and K0700B for tracking improvements or declines in performance. Since those MDS Items are being obsoleted, K0700A will be replaced with the new item K0710A3, and K0700B will be replaced with the new item K0710B3 as of October 1st.

  4. Dietary Profile Report: This report values from K0700A and K0700B to categorize residents based on the proportion of calories they receive through parental or tube feeding, and the average fluid intake per day by IV or tube feeding. Since those MDS Items are being obsoleted, K0700A will be replaced with the new item K0710A3, and K0700B will be replaced with the new item K0710B3 for assessments dated on or after October 1, 2013.

  5. Speech Therapy Report: Like the Occupational Therapy Report, this report uses K0700A for tracking improvements or declines in performance. K0700A will be replaced with the new item K0710A3 for assessments dated on or after October 1, 2013.

  6. RUG and ADL Trends Report: This report will be updated before October 1st, in order to take into acount changes in the RUG scoring
