OASIS accuracy is your key to becoming a 5-star agency, achieving value-based bonuses and getting full and proper reimbursement. Attend this full-day, intermediate-level OASIS training on the most challenging items – those questions that continue to create confusion and put your agency at risk when answered incorrectly. You will:
Learn the specific OASIS items and guidance that are new, including Section GG (functional abilities and goals) and 4 new items (GG0100 prior functioning, GG0110 prior devise use, GG0130 self care, and GG0170 mobility, Section J (health conditions) including J1800 and J1900 (falls).
Get details on items that have been removed from OASIS, including M0903, M1011, M1017, M1025, M1034, M1036, M1200-M1240, M1300-M1302, M2250 and more! Learn how to capture these conditions now that they are no longer on the assessment form.
Avoid CMS surveyor scrutiny with best practices for answering the OASIS SOC/ROC in timely fashion. Learn how to answer M0102 (Date of physician-ordered SOC) and M0104 (Date of referral) in challenging situations.
Correctly apply OASIS conventions to item-specific scenarios, while also learning how to apply OASIS-specific definitions for terms such as intractable pain, active treatment, care episode, same day, minimal assistance, and more.
Master the complicated wound items, including how to report pressure ulcers, stasis ulcers, surgical wounds and trauma wounds, and how to report their healing status.
Ensure accuracy in the reporting of neuro/emotional/behavioral items (M1700 - M1745) to ensure appropriate POC development and risk adjustment of outcomes.
Work through the ADL items (M1800 - M1860) to ensure you're accurately reporting the patient's functional status, or you risk case-mix points and inaccurate outcome scores.
Walk away with best practices to ensure your documentation matches the OASIS, which matches the plan of care.
