Blueprint for OASIS Accuracy

TWO DAYS TO BETTER ACCURACY

Blueprint for OASIS Accuracy is a 2-day, 13-hour workshop highly focused on the current OASIS data collection rules and instructions. As these rules continue to evolve, Blueprint keeps you up to date, always sourcing instructions and providing the latest key source documents in handout form to rely upon after the workshop.  Empowering staff with defendable OASIS scoring practices provides your agency with the accurate outcomes and proper reimbursement you deserve to provide quality care. All sessions are presented by two expert instructors who have earned the Certificate for OASIS Specialist – Clinical (COS-C) designation.  Our instructors use their many years and varied home health experiences to illustrate concepts, answer questions and guide attendees easily through multiple application scenarios and a mock exam. The Blueprint for OASIS Accuracy program serves as the premier review workshop for the COS-C exam and is offered exclusively through OASIS Answers, Inc. – the industry leader in OASIS Education.

 

This workshop is designed to:  

  • Support the educational needs of home health clinicians in achieving comprehension and accuracy in OASIS data collection using guidelines established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
  • Provide a preparatory review for candidates for the COS-C (Certificate for OASIS Specialist - Clinical) examination. Please note that if you plan to take the COS-C Exam, it requires an additional fee.
  • Supply the knowledge and tools necessary to boost clinical confidence while building a foundation of data collection precision.
  • Provide relevent nursing Continuing Education credit required for license renewal
