Preparing for OASIS E

Course Learning Outcomes

As a result of participating in this learning activity the learner will be able to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of methods to prepare now for the implementation of OASIS E in 2023 by passing the post-test with a score of 80% or more following the on-line learning activity.

Home health professionals and agencies don’t have to wait to begin training on OASIS E! Based on information currently available from CMS, 75% of the new tool will remain the same as OASIS D1. Working now on strategies to improve your understanding of and accuracy in data collection on current data items as well as developing a plan for transitioning to the new items can set up a path for a smoother transition into the new tool.

This is a self-paced course with knowledge check activities. These non-graded activities allow you to check your understanding of the lesson objectives before proceeding on in the course. At the end of the course, you will be required to take the final exam. You must score 80% or higher to pass the course and complete the evaluation to obtain a certificate of completion. The last day to successfully complete this course and receive a Certificate of Completion is December 31, 2022. You must complete the module, Final Quiz and Course Survey on or before that day.

  • Discuss strategies for improving the accuracy of OASIS data collection with respect to current OASIS items.
  • Examine some of the items that are “new” in OASIS E.
  • Establish a fundamental plan for successful transition to OASIS E.
