Notice of Cessation of 2007 On-Line Data Entry Annual Statistical Report to the Commissioner of Health

Effective Date: July 30, 2007

Purpose:

The purpose of this informational bulletin is to notify licensed Nursing Homes and Boarding Care Homes, which are also Medicare and/or Medicaid certified, that they are no longer required to complete the on-line Annual Statistical Report to the Commissioner. The information previously obtained by on-line submission will be collected for 2007 utilizing data from the Federal Minimum Data Set (MDS).

Licensed Nursing Homes and Boarding Care Homes that are not Medicare and/or Medicaid certified must continue to complete the on-line Annual Statistical Report to the Commissioner since these facilities do not submit the MDS data.

The Annual Statistical Report data previously received for fiscal year 2006 is in the process of being finalized.

Background

Data for the Annual Statistical Report is collected by the Department of Health under Minnesota statute 144.564 Monitoring of Subacute or Transitional Care Services and Minnesota Rule 4655.1084 Subp. 4 and Subp. 5 Data Collection.
