jRAVEN 1.7.0

Release Notes

**Please Note** It is strongly recommended that you use Chrome to download the jRAVEN application. If using Internet Explorer, you may receive a pop-up message warning that the application you are about to install is “…an unrecognized app” and Windows has prevented the app from starting or that the signature is invalid. If you do receive a warning message like this, you can still complete the installation by either right-clicking on the jRAVENSetup…exe, or selecting “More info”, where you will have the option to “Run anyway”. Once you select to run, the install process will complete as usual.

jRAVEN (version 1.7.0) is now available for download which contains the following updates:
 
1) Supports v1.17 of the MDS Item Set.
2) Supports v3.00 of the MDS Data Specifications.
3) Includes v3.1.0 of the MDS VUT.
4) Includes the initial release of the PDPM Grouper.
5) Supports the Correction Policy update to not allow corrections if it causes the target date to cross the 10/1/2019 date.
6) Supports the updated submission timeframe change from 3 years to 2 years.

Note that this install does not contain the final release of the PDPM Grouper. There is a known issue related to the NTA Score where it will need to account for the same diagnosis code under different conditions. jRAVEN will be re-released once this change is done and verified.

Install Instructions

ATTENTION! 
If you are uncertain which configuration of jRAVEN you are currently using, please contact the QTSO Help Desk.

For current jRAVEN users it is strongly recommended that a database backup be completed prior to beginning the upgrade process. For questions related to data backup please consult the jRAVEN User Guide or contact the QTSO Help Desk.

Once an upgrade installation has begun, for any configuration type, users should not cancel or close any of the windows displayed.

Failure to comply with these recommendations may result in loss of data.

STANDALONE

The Standalone installation is self-contained on one workstation.

Users that have not yet installed jRAVEN and wish to install a Standalone version should:

  1. Begin by reviewing the jRAVEN 1.7.0 Installation Guide.

  2. Use the jRAVENSetup-1.7.0.exe.

**Please Note: The Standalone and Network Client version of the application are both included in the jRAVENSetup-1.7.0.exe.

 

NETWORK CLIENT/SERVER

The Network configuration installation is intended for a group of users with a designated database server in a separate location. Each user will have the jRAVEN Network Client installed on their PC and the database will be stored in a network location.

ALL network client applications should be closed when upgrading the server. Upgrade time will vary depending on database size. Once an installation/upgrade has begun users should not cancel or close any of the windows displayed.

ALL jRAVEN client installations should be upgraded to the latest version prior to logging into the application. Failure to comply with these recommendations may result in loss of data.

Note that if you already have the Network Client/Server (v1.5.0) installed at your location and have been using it, you do NOT need to upgrade the server version of jRAVEN at this time.

There have been NO changes to jRAVENServerSetup-1.5.0.exe. So you only need to run the Client version – jRAVENSetup-1.7.0.exe.

Users who need to install or upgrade a Network/Client configuration of jRAVEN should:

  1. Begin by completing a database backup if you are a current jRAVEN user.
  2. Review the jRAVEN 1.7.0 Installation Guide.
  3. Use the jRAVENServerSetup-1.5.0.exe.
  4. Use the jRAVENSetup-1.7.0.exe to install the jRAVEN Network Client to each workstation.

If you are uncertain which configuration of jRAVEN you are currently using, please contact the QTSO Help Desk.
