OASIS E Preparation Webinar Series
Series Title -  OASIS E Prep: Building Blocks for Success
Target Audience - RN, PT, OT, SLP, Quality / Reviewer Staff
 
2022 is shaping up to be quite a year for home health agencies as Home Health Value Based Purchasing and OASIS E will require preparation that will consume already limited resources. Changes to OASIS have always increased stress for all organizational levels. Waiting until the end of the year to educate staff collides with the holiday season - a time that is very busy for agencies under normal circumstances.
 
It is important to keep perspective. Not every item in OASIS E is “new” as many of the current items remain in the updated tool. That being said, items related to the functional assessment have been a source of frustration for both clinicians and reviewers as they are a consistent area where corrections are needed. Effectively preparing for OASIS E must include a focus on dealing with issues related to the “old” items in a way that reduces errors in 2022. This increases the ability of the organization to address the “new” items as implementation draws closer and minimize errors and corrections in 2023.
 
This series of 4 webinars will provide agencies with the tools needed to prepare for OASIS E:

  • Session 1 - OASIS E Prep: Assessment of Function: M and GG
    • Objectives:
      • Define “safety” in the context of the OASIS items related to functional ability.
      • Discuss strategies for improving the accuracy of OASIS data collection with respect to functional ability.
      • Connect assessment of function using the M and GG OASIS items.
