    OASIS D Snapshot

    Webinar

    Tuesday, May 1, 2018
    11:30am - 1:00pm


    The OASIS D will be implemented on January 1, 2019 and the new proposed changes have just been released. This is just one step in moving to a uniform assessment for post-acute settings.

    What is changing? What is being added?

    What OASIS Items are being removed? Why would they remove that one? I thought that one was really important! How do I make sense of this report?

    Take a deep breath and let Lisa Selman-Holman guide you and your staff through the proposed changes and explain the rationale for proposed changes. Take advantage of her vast knowledge and expertise on the numerous changes she has seen through the years.

     In this interactive program we will discuss the new survey G tags and lessons learned since implementation. Find out the top survey deficiencies so far under the new CoPs. We will discuss the struggle of coordination of care, and care planning, and how these items touch almost every aspect of the business.

During this intermediate session participants will learn effective strategies and approaches to prepare for survey and how to stay in compliance.

     After this session learners will have a working knowledge of:

    ·         The number of charts based on unduplicated census that the surveyors will be reviewing
