PROPer OASIS Payment - 2017
OASIS data are used to adjust per-episode payment rates for patient conditions that affect care needs. In any data-driven system, the quality of the output is only as good as the quality of the data input. OASIS data are used to produce quality reports for agencies, public reports on the Medicare Home Health Compare website, and to determine payment

Data analysis at levels all the way up to CMS support a concern that responses are selected to maximize payments and may not accurately reflect the needs of the patients served. This session will put payment items into a larger context to ensure overall consistency when collecting and reviewing data.
- Identify the OASIS items that are used to determine payment for an episode of home health services.
