OASIS-E1: Ready to Download

CMS' manual for OASIS-E1 is now available online. Download yours for free. OASIS-E1 will be effective January 1, 2025. 

Here's an excerpt from the OASIS-E1 manual about what changes it contains:

1.4 Changes from OASIS-E to OASIS-E1.

The main reason for revising OASIS for version E1, effective January 1, 2025, is to add one new item, O0350 Patient's COVID vaccination is up to date, associated with the COVID Vaccine quality measure (QM) finalized in the Calendar Year (CY) 2024 Home Health (HH) Prospective Payment System Final Rule (CMS-1780-F).

CMS is removing two items, M0110 Episode Timing and M2200 Therapy Need that are no longer used in the HH Quality Reporting Program (QRP) or for other CMS purposes. 

The GG0130 Self Care and GG0170 Mobility items are revised to remove the Discharge Goals, due to the removal of the Application of Percent of Long-Term Care Hospital (LTCH) Patients with an Admission and Discharge Functional Assessment and a Care Plan that Addresses Function (Application of Functional Assessment/Care Plan), also finalized in the CY2024 HH final rule.

One item, D0150 Patient Health Questionnaire is revised to clarify the instructions.

1.4.1 What's new with the OASIS instrument for version E1?

  • One new item has been added (O0350)
  • Two items are removed (M0110, M2200)
  • Three items are revised (GG0130, GG0170, D0150)
  • Updated skip pattern (M0102)

Refer to Appendix D for a more detailed description of instrument and guidance changes.

Now is not too soon to begin preparing. 

Be well.
