I know it's super nerdy that I'm excited about this. But then, that's who I am.
OASIS-C2 replaces OASIS-C1/ICD-10 January 2017, in whatever final form it takes. You can help determine what that final form will be if you submit your OASIS-C2 opinion and ideas to CMS, as long as you do so by May 31, 2016.
CMS presents, as its Happy New Year wish, the latest version of the Outcome Assessment Information Set (OASIS) – OASIS-C2. And next year’s “Happy New Year” gift will be implementing the new OASIS-C2 January 1, 2017.
Three new standardized items & ten modified, renumbered items appear in OASIS-C2. The newest OASIS looks a bit different, too. Single data-entry boxes replace check boxes in OASIS-2 for items with only one possible response, and are formatted like Hospice Information Set (HIS) items – a plus for the RN who works in both home health and hospice.
