The proposed updates to the OASIS item set, referred to as the OASIS-D, was posted by CMS today in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) requirements. This proposed revised OASIS item set is scheduled for implementation on January 1, 2019.
The OASIS is being modified to: include changes related to the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act of 2014 (the IMPACT Act), changes to accommodate data element removals to reduce burden, and changes to improve formatting throughout the document.
Additional information is available in the March 12, 2018 Federal Register.
The OASIS-D item set is available on the CMS website.
OAI will be providing an overview of the OASIS-D on our April 18, 2018 Quarterly OASIS UpdateTeleconference. Registration for this teleconference is now available.
