Phase 3 Testing Timeline
|Data Cleanup Initiative||Michael Kennedy|
Davita not looking for a final plan regarding submissions, but rather a good discussion about how we should approach it.
|Open Discussion||Yvette Brown|
Davita expressed concerned about latency in the Pre-Prod environment and if CMS required any assistance with regard to load testing.
NRAA asked is there a mechanism for a retry if a submission fails. Kelly L, responded yes, there is a retry mechanism on Production.
Next meeting scheduled for
- EQRS Validation Codes: Data Submission (Errors & Warnings) Implementation Project
