Product Description

Understand the Critical Role of OASIS for Homecare Agencies to get 5 Star Ratings!


OASIS is the core of what we do in homecare – determining reimbursement, driving the plan of care, giving you overall patient outcomes, and leads to the Public Star Ratings! Never before has OASIS taken on such a critical role, as this is the root of the Star Ratings that homecare agencies are now measured by. 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 session with expert speaker Sharon Litwin, RN, BSHS, MHA, HCS-D will focus on the outcomes reported in CASPER reports & HH Compare, so that you have an understanding of how to analyze the reports, to be able to impact your scores, leading to an increase in your 5 Star Rating! The OASIS is the key to increasing your outcomes and star rating, so Sharon will relate each outcome to the M items and discuss the intent and how the assessment needs to be done. This session will give you a simplistic approach to improving your outcomes and Star Ratings! You will learn how to involve your staff in order to impact your Star Ratings!
