Blueprint for OASIS Accuracy Workshop


OASIS-D Data Set



PROGRAM OVERVIEW

OASIS data collection continues to evolve! This workshop provides instruction on the significant changes implemented with OASIS-D January 1, 2019 based on the most current CMS guidance available. This effective, up-to-the-minute education is targeted for field data collectors, their 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-D 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.


Learning Objectives:
  • Select OASIS responses that accurately represent clinical assessment findings

  • Provide accurate data for quality measurement and reimbursement

  • Document OASIS data collection compliant with CMS resources and instructions



COS-C Exam (Optional certification; separate fees apply)


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 Workshop, 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-D item specific scoring.
