The implementation date for OASIS-D is right around the corner. Beginning January 1, 2019, home health agencies must use the OASIS-D item set to collect and report data for Medicare and Medicaid patients that receive skilled nursing services and are 18 years old and older. The main reason for revising the OASIS is to increase standardization across post-acute care to calculate cross-setting quality measures in accordance with the IMPACT Act. These changes present significant risk if not properly implemented and managed, so we have created this resource hub to help.
