CMS releases OASIS-E guidance manual

CMS has released the much-anticipated draft guidance manual for the OASIS-E version of the OASIS data set. The OASIS-E will be used for assessments beginning Jan. 1, 2023.

The new 396-page guidance manual includes an item-by-item guide to the OASIS-E assessment instrument (page 13), as well as a 10-page description of the changes from OASIS-D to OASIS-E (page 372).

You can access the guidance manual in the “Downloads” section of the OASIS Users Manuals page at CMS https://go.cms.gov/3yInZMm.

CMS also has updated the proposed OASIS-E form and a log of changes since the last update of the form in February.

Those resources can be found in the “Downloads” section at https://go.cms.gov/3PCpQIy.

Don’t get left behind. Early OASIS-E prep can keep staff from becoming overwhelmed and improve your outcomes, including reducing readmissions. For two OASIS-E training opportunities, visit https://store.decisionhealth.com/virtual-events/.
