NEW!!! CMS Posts Draft OASIS-E Instrument!

CMS has just posted the Draft OASIS-E all item data set with updates that were finalized in the CMS Home Health CY 2020 Final Rule. The revised instrument is effective January 1st, 2021.  This new version of OASIS includes significant changes including the addition of numerous items to align data collection across the Post-Acute Care (PAC) settings.  A number of items were also removed.  This draft data set is available at the CMS Home Health Quality Reporting Program OASIS Data Sets webpage in the downloads section at the bottom of the page.   Please note that the OASIS instrument is not yet final. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval is required and is expected later this year.
