At the downloads section of the OASIS Data Specifications webpage, final OASIS D-1 data submission specifications are available (see related link). The new version V2.31.0 is useful for OASIS assessments with an M0090 Date Assessment completed of Jan. 1, 2020 or later.

The changes with this version are necessary for the transition to the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM). Specifically, the changes include:

  • the addition of two existing items to the follow-up assessment instrument (with corresponding revisions to the all items instrument)
  • changes from required to optional data collection at certain time points for the 23 items.
