Blueprint for OASIS Accuracy - OASIS D

Blueprint for OASIS Accuracy - OASIS D
OASIS data collection continues to evolve! This workshop provides instruction on the significant changes implemented with OASIS-D January 1, 2019 based on the most current CMS guidance available.
This effective, up-to-the-minute education is targeted for field data collectors, their supervisors, OASIS educators and reviewers, quality improvement staff, and those preparing for the COS-C Exam. 

Experience the comprehensive and nationally acclaimed two-day Blueprint for OASIS Accuracy workshop and learn to confidently teach, audit and collect OASIS-D items accurately. Through guided, expert instruction, and participation in problem-solving discussions and application scenarios, achieve mastery of the OASIS items, conventions, and the latest data collection rules.

The workshop educational objectives include:
  • Selecting OASIS responses that accurately represent clinical assessment findings
  • Providing accurate data for quality measurement and reimbursement
  • Documenting OASIS data collection compliant with CMS resources and instructions
Rather than provide opinions, assumptions, or unfounded interpretations, the “Blueprint” presenters will model reliance on CMS guidance documents and provide and demonstrate strategies for how to find defendable answers to your OASIS questions.
