Description:
Agency leaders can sometimes lose sleep over the latest publicly reported outcomes and Star Ratings numbers. They turn to OASIS training as the solution…and there are many available options out there. However, do most training options really speak to the front-line clinicians? OASIS data is the “PROP” that drives an agency forward. If one of the blades of the
PROP-eller is not working properly, the boat will still move forward but will lose power and efficiency. This educational series uniquely provides clinicians with OASIS insights in four key areas, making the “big picture” of this data set relevant and understandable.

4 nursing CEs will be available for those who complete the entire series.

Webinar 1 – March 20
Process Measures
Often identifiable by “yes/no” response options, OASIS items that create process measure data can cause anxiety in two key areas – documentation to support the selected response and the negative perceptions if “no” is selected. This webinar will assist data collectors and reviewers with making peace with both issues and ensure accuracy.

Webinar 2 – April 24
Risk Adjustment
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.

Webinar 3 – May 21
Outcome Measures
Given the connection to Home Health Compare and Star 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.

Webinar 4 – June 19
Payment
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.
