The IMPACT Act set the stage for sweeping changes across all post-acute care settings. While some PAC facilities saw changes as soon as 2016, home health experienced a few changes in 2017 with the remainder set to start January 1, 2019. OASIS-D will be the culmination of Medicare’s goal to apply standardized patient assessment measures across the four PAC settings. From this PAC data, Medicare hopes to make care safer and more affordable along with improving communications and coordination of transitions of care. By taking the mystery out of OASIS-D, your agency can continue to focus on providing top quality patient care while having the documentation knowledge necessary to back it up.
