The current payment methodology for Medicare Part A home health services is driven in part by eight specific items found in the OASIS instrument. Home Health Value Based Payment also adjusts payment upward or downward using a Total Performance Score (TPS) method, 35% of which is calculated based on OASIS accuracy. Incorrect OASIS responses to these specific items can negatively impact revenue. Clinicians have historically had challenges with accurate and consistent OASIS data collection. Agencies expend significant resources dealing with the rework associated with monitoring and getting responses corrected. This series of microcourses will focus on each of the payment-relevant and HHVBP-relevant OASIS items in detail. They will be explained in practical terms, include knowledge application, and be connected to related GG items to facilitate assessment consistency. Clinicians and quality assurance staff will benefit from a focused review of the OASIS items that relate to PDGM. The goal is for the data to be collected accurately the first time in order to ensure proper payment and decrease agency costs. This course will focus on the assessment of the ability to complete M1830 (Bathing).

Assessment of the ability to complete bathing requires a clear understanding of the full scope of the task and the implications when the risk of falls has been identified. The need for “assistance” encompasses anything another person would need to do to ensure the patient remains safe when doing this activity. These important concepts will be tied together and reinforced with learning application activities.
