Blueprint for OASIS Accuracy
OASIS-C1 Data Set


Two FULL day OASIS-C1 Data Collection Rules & Guidance workshop, with optional Certificate for OASIS Specialist-Clinical Exam Administration.

OVERVIEW

Effective, up-to-the-minute education targeted for field data collectors, their supervisors 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-C1 items accurately. Through guided, expert instruction, and participation in problem-solving discussions and application scenarios, achieve mastery of the OASIS items, conventions, and the latest data collection rules.

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 find defendable answers to your OASIS questions.

This 2-day 13 contact hour workshop is designed:
  • To support the educational needs of home health clinicians in achieving comprehension and accuracy in OASIS data collection using guidelines established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)

  • To provide a preparatory review for candidates for the COS-C (Certificate for OASIS Specialist - Clinical) examination.

  • To supply you with the knowledge and tools necessary to boost your confidence and improve your foundation of data precision.
COS-C EXAM:

The Certificate for OASIS Specialist-Clinical (COS-C) Exam is a voluntary certificate examination for those interested in demonstrating and establishing their expertise and commitment to OASIS data accuracy. Administered the day following the Blueprint for OASIS Accuracy training, the scope of the COS-C exam is similar to the Blueprint workshop agenda, covering CMS guidelines related to OASIS time points, regulations, patient populations, and OASIS-C1 item specific scoring. Candidates who successfully pass the examination are awarded the COS-C designation.

For additional registration information, see below to the right.
