With each new change CMS undertakes, it becomes more difficult to manage all the intricacies of OASIS -C. Face to Face and the final rules changes to M1024 will impact your operations and the need to get everything correct the first time. Attend this program to learn the essentials of OASIS-C that you NEED to know - including how to assess the patient the correct w ay for the most accurate OASIS. This workshop explains what you need to know, what you need to do and how to do it. There will be plenty of scenarios and documentation examples to set things straight. The program will provide in-depth coverage of OASIS time points and OASIS-C best practices. OASIS education is essential and with changing interpretations and additional clarifications, it has become compulsory. Are you working hard on your outcomes, but not making headway? Perhaps the "other" OASIS data items are hindering your progress. "OASIS C: Navigating Your Way to Success" is not just training on the payment questions, but an in-depth analysis of the OASIS data items in regards to payment and outcomes. This workshop is intended to support the home health clinician's understanding and accuracy in OASIS data collection.
We are offering this workshop in several different locations this year and the exam will be available on Friday, June 7 at Evergreen Health in Kirkland, WA. For more information or to register today, click here.
