What is OASIS?
Certified Home health agencies (HHAs) or those seeking initial certification under the Medicare conditions of participation are required to collect and encode (data enter) the Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS) items, which are part of the comprehensive assessment of patients. In addition, agencies must transmit OASIS information on Medicare and Medicaid patients within 30 days of completing the assessment.
Details of these requirements are published in the Federal Register dated Jan. 25, 1999, (64 FR 3748 and 64 FR 3764) and updated in the June 18, 1999, Federal Register (64 FR 32984) and Dec. 23, 2005, Federal Register/Vol. 70, No. 246 pp 76199 - 76208.
