When leadership loses sleep over latest agency publicly reported outcomes and Star Ratings numbers, OASIS training continues…and there are many available options when it comes to OASIS education. However, do training options really speak to the front-line clinicians? OASIS C2 data is the PROP that drives an agency forward. If one of the blades of a prop is not working properly, the boat will still move forward, but will lose power and efficiency. This educational series uniquely provides clinicians with OASIS into 4 key areas, making the ”big picture” of this data set relevant and understandable:

 

Webinar 1: Process Measures

Wednesday, September 19th , 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm Eastern

 

Often identifiable by “yes/no” response options, OASIS C2 items that create process measure data can cause anxiety in two key areas – is there documentation to support the selected response and the negative perceptions if “no” is selected. This session will assist data collectors and reviewers with making peace with both issues and ensure accuracy.

Webinar 2: Risk Adjustment
Wednesday, October 3rd , 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm Eastern

 

Often the least often discussed area of OASIS data collection; risk adjustment creates the bigger picture of the patient complexity. Many items are issues that cannot be “fixed” by providers but directly impact the plan of care. This session will highlight

 

OASIS items that may be overlooked and undervalued by data collectors and reviewers.

Webinar 3: Outcome Measures
Wednesday, October 17th , 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm Eastern

 

Given the connection to Home Health Compare and Star Ratings, outcome measures are often the most discussed area of OASIS data collection. An unintended consequence can be significant inconsistencies between item responses. This session will highlight OASIS items that have consistently presented to data collectors and reviewers.

Webinar 4: Payment
Wednesday, October 31st , 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm Eastern

 

OASIS items that directly impact payment receive much attention to ensure financial viability. At times, they are emphasized to the point data collectors and reviewers appear to only focus on them when it comes to accuracy. Data analysis at levels all the way up to CMS support a concern that responses are selected to maximize payments and may not accurately reflect the needs of the patients served. This session will put payment items into a larger context to ensure overall consistency when collecting and reviewing data.
