Karen Morris and Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

We’ve received several inquiries recently related to accessing OSCAR reports.  Providers are reminded that with the implementation of the MDS 3.0 on October 2010, Appendix P of the State Operations Manual was revised. At the time, CMS officially changed the terminology of Online Survey Certification and Reporting (OSCAR) to Certification and Survey Provider Enhanced Reporting (CASPER) per S&C letter 10-27.  Attached you will find a copy of the MDS 3.0 Quality Measure (QM) Report manual which provides instructions for accessing your facility’s CASPER reports and information to assist you in interpreting and using the data for your survey preparation and Quality Improvement programs. We have also posted a copy of the Manual on the NYSHFA website under the Facility Resources/Survey and Certification tab.
