CMS Data Element Library Now Available

in Clinical & Quality

CMS has launched the first CMS Data Element Library (DEL) --- a public resource for providers, vendors, researchers, and other stakeholders that use CMS assessments. End users will be able to search and obtain reports on CMS post-acute care assessment contents, including questions, response codes, relevant attributes, and importantly their associated health IT standards, in one location. The availability of the DEL will further support interoperability and the exchange and reuse of data across post-acute care and other providers by using common assessment standards and definitions to facilitate coordinated care and improved health outcomes.
