    what is oasis?
    outcome & assessment information set (oasis) is an asessment information tool /form required to be utilized by medicare and medicaid certified homecare agencies to document clinical outcomes of each patient. it also determines payment for care for medicare patient sbased on patients functional, diagnosis and clinical status. how well one completes this multipage form (ours is 15 pgs) on admission, resumption of care post hospitalization, and discharge documents progress in getter better or lack thereof between admission and discharge from homecare services using a score.; also affects how much $$$ agency receives for care. this oasisdocument is transmitted to the state+ medicare and compared to other patients with same diagnosis across the us. the total outcomes by agency are publically reported measures quarterly posted on cms (medicare) website.

    within the next 2 years, agencies will be payed more $ dependent on improvment in scores for patinets so very big deal. takes minimum of 45 min to 1hr15 min to complete this document.

    I'm really surprised more home health nurses aren't posting on this website..We need to get the word out! There's so much about our daily lives we could share...Thanks again!
