*Tool: Pre/Post Test
*Resource: Current OASIS Guidance
*Description: 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. Additionally, although not commonly associated with outcome measures, ICD-10 code selections as a component of the OASIS data set, have a calculated impact on agency scores. Although OASIS D is looming, agencies cannot lose focus on accuracy with the current tool as fraud, waste and abuse efforts are not expected to change with implementation of a new data set January 1, 2019. This session will highlight OASIS items, including ICD-10 diagnosis coding, that have consistently presented challenges to data collectors and reviewers and provide strategies to manage risk.
