Product Description

Prepare Your Clinicians for OASIS-D Today to Prevent Productivity Losses

 

Effective January 1, 2019, your reimbursement, outcomes, star ratings, and more will depend on the seriously revamped OASIS tool. It is essential that your home health clinicians and other staff get trained on the revised OASIS D requirements so that they can capture the new information correctly without wasting time or adversely impacting your outcomes.

Make sure your home health agency can face the new challenges confidently in this audio conference with OASIS expert Vicky Trevarthan, as she shows how to capture the new information quickly and correctly. Trevarthan will walk you through the changes in OASIS D, and teach you how to answer and assess the new GG and J items – including the GG items with detailed requirements that are currently not assessed in home health, and the items clinicians will no longer need to answer any more.

The changes due to the IMPACT Act (Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act of 2014) cannot be taken lightly, because their purpose is to standardize patient assessment data collected for Post-Acute Care (PAC) providers – Long-Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs), Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs), Skilled Nursing facilities (SNFs), and Home Health Agencies (HHAs). This will help develop improved quality measure (QM); utilize the data to compare all four PAC providers for quality; and improve coordination of care and discharge planning between the PAC providers.

After attending this program, you will be familiar with the changes in OASIS D. You will know how to perform new, detailed functional assessments on patients – such as GG and J items currently not assessed in home health. Plus, you’ll be confident in your ability to achieve better outcomes by capturing information correctly without wasting time.
