OASIS: Start of Care Assessment

Green Clock Hours: 0.75

The comprehensive assessment performed at the Start of Care (SOC) has many required elements for the development of a home health plan of care. These assessment elements and their accurate completion have a dramatic impact on patient quality measures and agency reimbursement.

The Outcome and Assessment Information Set, currently known as the OASIS-E, contains specific item sets that are part of the Start of Care. Evaluating pain, respiratory status, bowel function, the ability to perform activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs), mobility, device and aid use, medications, and falls are crucial components.

Assessment and evaluation in the home health environment are not meant to be performed in a linear fashion; instead, clinicians must learn to observe multiple indicators, often concurrently, that must be factored into completion of the OASIS-E. This course will guide you through scenarios designed to provide an opportunity to practice analyzing patient assessment data for OASIS-E items using a holistic, efficient approach.

This course is NOT designed to teach you how to code OASIS-E items appropriately, although you will be given an opportunity to use the data that you observe to enter codes for a few OASIS-E items.
