The Resident Assessment Validation and Entry System (jRAVEN) was developed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). jRAVEN is a free Java based software application which provides an option for facilities to collect and maintain MDS Assessment data for subsequent submission to the appropriate state and/or national data repository. jRAVEN displays the MDS Item Sets similar to the paper version of the forms. Please consult the jRAVEN Installation and User Guides for additional information.

jRAVEN v1.7.6 is now available for download. Users do not need a previous version of jRAVEN to download, install or use jRAVEN v1.7.6.

jRAVEN v1.7.6 includes the following enhancement:

  • The new PDPM Grouper, V1.0008, included in this are the six ICD-10 codes that were added in the 1.0007 version.


JRAVEN v1.7.6 replaces jRAVEN (version 1.7.5), which contained the following updates:  

  • The new PDPM Grouper, v1.0007, along with its source code and test cases, which was updated to include the 6 ICD-10 codes that were inadvertently excluded from the previous release (1.0006).  This version, V1.0007, adds six ICD-10 codes that were inadvertently excluded from the NTA calculation: 
  • T8484XA, 
  • T8389XA, 
  • T8321XA,
