In order to comply with CMS, the revised Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS-C2) must be implemented by January 1, 2017.
Not only does CMS use OASIS-C2 for data collection and documentation, but the data is also used for star ratings and value-based purchasing, affecting your reimbursement, your reputation, and possibly your referral rate.
Home Health Guide to OASIS-C2: A Reference for Field Staff walks home health providers through OASIS-C2 documentation and the changes made to the OASIS data set by CMS, letting your providers properly document M items and ensuring your agency receives proper reimbursement for each patient. This book includes step-by-step instructions for filling out each OASIS-C2 item, explanations of how OASIS items fit into various assessments, a breakdown of how the data collection affects reimbursement, and troubleshooting tips to avoid incorrect payments, denials, and fines. The new edition also points out items related to quality of patient care star ratings, offers case-mix tips, and provides examples of properly documented diagnoses.
This vital resource will help your home health staff:
- Recognize updates to the OASIS data set
- Identify items involved in value-based purchasing
- Understand the C2 updates
