• CMS Scheduled Extended Maintenance – March 16, 2016 – March 21, 2016

    Wednesday January 20, 2016

    Just a quick heads-up from the team at eHDS. See below for a notice received from CMS. Please plan accordingly!

    Please be aware that CMS has planned an off-schedule extended maintenance period for all of the national QIES systems, which include the MDS 3.0 Submission and CASPER systems, for Wednesday, March 16, 2016 beginning at 8:00 PM ET and continuing through Monday, March 21, 2016 at 11:59 PM ET.

    This makes for a 5+ day window where all of the national QIES systems will be offline and providers will be unable to transmit any MDS assessments or obtain reports. This also applies to vendors who submit assessments on the providers' behalf. CMS has started to post notices to the related application and support websites that encourage vendors and providers to take this downtime into account and plan their business around it.

    This information is also noted on your Care Watch home page. We recommend making sure your team is well informed and is planning for this scheduled downtime.
