Understanding What is Involved in Providing OASIS Training to  Your Home Care Clinicians.

An OASIS-C1 Training does not have to be complex or expensive. Trainig can be done as part of the organization staff meeting. CMS provides copius amount of educational materials that are easily accessible as quarterly OASIS Q&A, OASIS-C1/ICD-10 Guidance Manual and an OASIS Educator for each state. Other methods of education can be accomplished by providing information in the patient admission packet reminding the clinicians of CMS expectations on answering a specific OASIS-C1 question that your organization is not achieving the reference group targeted outcome measure.

An OASIS-C1 Education Session needs to include the OASIS User Manual, Casper Report data related to the quality measure being presented for your home health organization, open discussion time for clinicians to understand the correlations that contribute to the negative outcome by answering incorrectly during the completion of the SOC/ROC/Follow-Up/Discharge/Transfer OASIS and the EBP that supports the need to educate patients on how to prevent complications when they have a chronic disease as e.g. Diabetes

The following is an example of a "TIP" provided to clinicians attached the the SOC/ROC OASIS section where M2250 is located on paper or in an electronic form in an application:

DIABETES DIAGNOSIS.

 2. Include a Diabetic Foot Care Teaching intervention in item# 21 of the plan of care.

3. Include a goal for this intervention in item# 22 of the plan of care, e.g. " Patient/caregiver will veralize/demonstrate 2-3 measure on Diabetic Foot Care.

4. Document education on Diabetic Foot Care and patient/caregiver response. 

5. When completing the Discharge OASIS C-1 M2400 Select "Yes" if the documentation on Diabetic Foot Care is included in the patient's chart.
