A number of changes to the OASIS data set have been made and will be incorporated into OASIS-D1 effective January 1, 2020 (click here for data submission specifications). These changes align with the new Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM). Under this new model, OASIS accuracy will continue to be important with Functional Impairment Level derived directly from OASIS items.
To help home health agencies understand these changes, Qualidigm has itemized the list of data set changes outlined in this one-page document. Additionally, Qualidigm recently released its Quality Quick Minute video series focused on the OASIS-D1 changes. The videos series is comprised of four brief, 90-second information videos outlining these changes to assist with preparation in anticipation of the January 1 effective date.
The OASIS-D1 Quality Quick Minute video series includes the following:
All four videos can also be accessed from the home health section of the Qualidigm website at www.qualidigm.org/our-services/home-healthcare-consulting/.
