Understanding CMS’s intent behind every M item will help clinicians to assign the correct scores for patients.
Durham, NC (PRWEB) September 07, 2017
AudioEducator, a division of audio conference and corporate education leader ProEdTech, will host the live webinar “OASIS C2 – New and Challenging Items” with healthcare consultant Sharon Litwin, RN, BSHS, MHA, HCS-D, on Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 1:00 pm ET. This session will address new items in the OASIS manual that apply to services provided by homecare clinicians.
Clinicians must understand the intent and guidance from the OASIS Manual in order to assess their homecare patients accurately, consistently, completely, and appropriately. At the core of the homecare industry, OASIS leads to reimbursement, outcomes for star ratings and value based purchasing (VBP). But many clinicians aren’t familiar with the intent or the impact of OASIS responses, or how to assess the patient and determine which of the standardized OASIS responses apply to their patients.
Answering “M items” correctly is of special importance. Understanding CMS’s intent behind every M item will help clinicians to assign the correct scores for patients. To expertly respond to OASIS items will be even more important in the next few years as CMS attempts to develop a tool that will accurately present and follow the patient across all care providers.
In this session, expert Sharon Litwin, RN, BSHS, MHA, HCS-D, will go over the intent of the M and GG items so that homecare clinicians are able to accurately assess their patients and ensure full reimbursement for their services. Sharon will also review the changes to OASIS C-2 and some of the challenging areas, including new items of comorbidities of diabetes and peripheral vascular disease, height/weight, and the new GG item in which clinicians must have the patient perform a task and score it, projecting the patient’s ability on discharge.
Clinicians and managers who perform, audit and/or are responsible for the integrity of OASIS in a home health agency, as well as beginners to OASIS, those who are struggling with OASIS, or those who need a refresher will all benefit from this seminar. The session will help field clinicians, RNs, PTs, OTs and STs who do OASIS to:
- Understand the concept and flow of OASIS C2 and the comprehensive assessment
- Explore the CMS concept behind OASIS and how it ties to the comprehensive assessment
- Get an overview of OASIS C2 changes
- Understand the New M and GG items in OASIS C2, including intent and guidelines
- Review challenging M items, the intent and how to assess and answer
- Understand how this relates to comprehensive assessment
