OASIS-D is starting Jan 1, 2019 with changes largely occurring due to the IMPACT ACT (Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act of 2014). The purpose of the IMPACT Act is to standardize patient assessment data collected for Post-Acute Care (PAC) providers; The PAC providers are: Long-Term Care Hospitals, Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities, Skilled Nursing facilities and Home Health Agencies.  The reason for standardization of data is to develop improved quality measures, utilize the data to compare all four PAC providers for quality, and improve coordination of care and discharge planning between the PAC providers. Therefore, we see in our OASIS-D that several GG and J items are in place. These items, particularly the GG items have very detailed assessment items, particularly for the patient functional abilities and goals. Many of these items are not currently assessed in home health.  Therefore, it is more important than ever to ensure that your clinicians are taught, understand and are able to perform these detailed functional assessments on their patients. Do not wait until January to teach these skills, as the assessment strategies are going to have to be done thoroughly by the team of clinicians caring for the patient! Join us for an intro to OASIS-D, reviewing items deleted, the OASIS-D guidance manual and the new GG and J items! Course Author: Vicky Trevarthan, RN, BS, COS-C, MHA Candidate Read More
