Home Health Care OASIS-D1

Home Health Care OASIS-D1 

In this course, you will learn about the OASIS document and how to record and transmit accurate data. Note: This course discusses or references the home health OASIS data set. The current version of this data set is the OASIS-D. In this course we will use the general term OASIS in reference to the current version. In addition, the language used by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) to describe pressure ulcers does not follow that of the current recommendations by the National Pressure Injury Advisory Panel, or NPIAP, which uses the term pressure injury. For this course, the CMS terminology will be used.
