iQIES Replaced jRAVEN on Oct. 1

On Oct. 1, 2023, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Resident Assessment Validation and Entry System (jRAVEN) will no longer be supported by CMS. CMS replaced the jRAVEN application with the Internet Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (iQIES), which is an online user tool for all valid target dates. iQIES is an internet facing, cloud-based system and requires users to be connected to the internet.

To submit assessments beginning Oct. 1 with the iQIES online user tool, users will be required to have either the Provider Administrator or Provider Assessment Coordinator user role. Please see the related notice posted to the QTSO Nursing Home (MDS)/Swing Bed Providers webpage.

If you have iQIES questions or require assistance, call the CMS QIES/iQIES Service Center at 800-339-9313 or email
