OASIS-E Data Sets:

OASIS continues to evolve! Based on the most current CMS guidance available, this workshop provides the nation’s best preparation on the 27 new OASIS-E items and guidance, scheduled to become effective January 1, 2023. This engaging, up-to-the-minute education is developed and is targeted for field data collectors, clinical supervisors, OASIS educators and reviewers, quality improvement staff, and those preparing for the COS-C Exam.

Experience the comprehensive and nationally acclaimed two-day Blueprint for OASIS Accuracy workshop and learn to confidently teach, audit and collect OASIS-E items accurately. Through guided, relatable, expert instruction, and participation in problem-solving discussions to code more than 50 application scenarios.

The workshop educational objectives include:

· Selecting OASIS responses that accurately represent clinical assessment findings

· Providing accurate data for valid quality measurement and payment

· Documenting OASIS data, compliant with CMS expectations and instructions

Rather than provide opinions, assumptions, or unfounded interpretations, the Blueprint presenters will model reliance on CMS guidance documents and provide and demonstrate strategies for how to become more familiar with the new resources, and how to find defendable answers to your OASIS questions.
