ExpiredOutcomes, OASIS and Your Agency Star Ratings

  • April 12, 2017
    11:30 am - 1:30 pm


OASIS is the core of what we do in homecare – determining reimbursement, driving the plan of care, and giving you overall patient outcomes. This webinar will focus on the outcomes reported in CASPER reports & HH Compare, and how you can impact your scores, leading to an increase in your 5-star rating.  The OASIS is the key to increasing your outcomes and 5-star rating, so we will relate each outcome to the M items and discuss the intent and how the assessment needs to be done. This webinar will show you how to involve your staff to impact your star ratings.


Don’t be left behind! Learn how the OASIS impacts the Star Ratings, how to analyze the CASPER outcome data, which M items are impacted and the intent given to accurately score.  This webinar will give you a simplistic approach to increasing your outcomes and Star Ratings!
