Ensure your front line staff consistently and correctly capture OASIS data!
This educational series uniquely provides clinicians with OASIS into 4 key areas, making the “big picture” of this data set relevant and understandable:
When leadership loses sleep over latest agency publicly reported outcomes and Star Ratings numbers, OASIS training continues. . . . and there are many available options when it comes to OASIS education . However, do training options really speak to the front line clinician?
“Fact: The front line determines the bottom line in home health.”
-Cindy Krafft, MS, PT, HCS-O
The importance of the front line clinician in understanding the who, what, when and why of OASIS data will result in greater accuracy. This is the driving force behind Kornetti & Krafft Health Care Solutions’ newest OASIS training.
Don’t lose sleep; enhance clinician data collection comprehension; enhance interdisciplinary care coordination; and achieve greater OASIS accuracy.
OASIS C2 data is the PROP that drives an agency forward. If one of the blades of a prop is not working properly, the boat will still move forward, but will lose power and efficiency.
This 4-Part series is designed to help your staff understand the concepts of every part of the OASIS C2 data set. Series and individual sessions are provided as recordings and are priced per agency. Keep and use as often as you need to train your current and new staff.

Process Measures - Session Description: Purchase Individual Session Here $119
Often identifiable by “yes/no” response options, OASIS items that create process measure data can cause anxiety in two key areas – is there documentation to support the selected response and the negative perceptions if “no” is selected. This session will assist data collectors and reviewers with making peace with both issues and ensure accuracy.
Differentiate between a process measure and an outcomes measure.
Define best practice and their relationship to OASIS process measures.
Connect care planning to issues identified by process measures.
Risk Adjustment - Session Description: Purchase Individual Session Here $119
Often the least often discussed area of OASIS data collection; risk adjustment creates the bigger picture of the patient complexity. Many items are issues that cannot be “fixed” by providers but directly impact the plan of care. This session will highlight OASIS items that may be overlooked and undervalued by data collectors and reviewers.
Identify two OASIS items used to calculate risk adjustment.
Examine how the structure of ICF can assist with documenting patient specific issues.
Connect identified risk areas to intentional care planning.
Outcome Measures - Session Description: Purchase Individual Session Here $119
Given the connection to Home Health Compare and Stars Ratings, outcome measures are often the most discussed area of OASIS data collection. An unintended consequence can be significant inconsistencies between item responses. This session will highlight OASIS items that have consistently presented challenges to data collectors and reviewers.
Differentiate between an outcome measure and a process measure.
Examine OASIS items that are used to measure outcomes.
Connect clinical decision making to outcome management.
OASIS Payment - Session Description: Purchase Individual Session Here $119
OASIS items that directly impact payment receive much attention to ensure financial viability. At times, they are emphasized to the point data collectors and reviewers appear to only focus on them when it comes to accuracy. Data analysis at levels all the way up to CMS support a concern that responses are selected to maximize payments and may not accurately reflect the needs of the patients served. This session will put payment items into a larger context to ensure overall consistency when collecting and reviewing data.
Identify the OASIS items that are used to determine payment for an episode of home health services.
Examine “accuracy” with respect to the calculation of case mix weight.
Connect caregiver willingness and ability to cost effective care planning.
