We've made several recent improvements in how SimpleMDS™ transmits MDS assessments and how you access your final validation reports.
Here's a quick summary of the three main changes:
1) A new progress bar lets you visually track MDS batch status
Now you can see at a glance where your MDS batch is in the transmission and analysis process. To open the final validation once the batch has been accepted, click the 'f' icon at the far right. A number "badge" (red number in a circle) indicates the number of assessments that were rejected.
2) MDS analysis is now built into the transmission process
Now you can automatically analyze every MDS sent to CMS. All batches are currently run through our basic MDS validation checks, but soon you will be able to build your own rules to apply or automatically send assessments to third party tools (such as PointRight, TeamTSI, MDS Director, etc.).
3) New visual indicators show rejections, duplicates and other stats
New icons and simple color coding lets you quickly see how many assessments were accepted or rejected by CMS
More analysis tools are on the way!
There will be more ways to analyze your MDS in the coming months, but for now these features are only open to a small group of select beta users.
We hope you enjoy using the new MDS workflow. As usual, our phone lines and email are open to suggestions. Please contact us via the help tab if you have any questions or improvement ideas.
