The RAI consists of three parts: the Minimum Data Set (MDS) Version 3.0, the Care Area Assessment (CAA) process and the RAI Utilization Guidelines.
The utilization of the three components gives information about a resident's funtional staus, strengths, weaknesses, and preferences, as well as offering guidance on further assessment once problems have been identified.
