OASIS-E Update

CMS has released the 1st quarter 2022 OASIS FAQs. The FAQs include several questions and answers regarding OASIS-E. The document states that OASIS-E data collection will begin with OASIS assessments with a M0090 date on  or after January 1, 2023. CMS will release a draft of the updated version of the OASIS instrument, OASIS-E, in early 2022, though we don’t yet have a more specific date.

The updated draft dataset and the final OASIS-E dataset will be posted on the Home Health Quality Reporting Program OASIS Data Sets webpage (when available, date TBD) https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-AssessmentInstruments/HomeHealthQualityInits/OASIS-Data-Sets
